In the metric system, a decimeter is a unit of length measurement. Deci denotes one-tenth. Hence decimeter denotes one-tenth of a single meter. A meter is composed of 100 centimeters, and 1/10th of this value equals 10 cm. As a result, a decimeter equals 10 centimeters. Therefore 1 dm = 10 cm. Here 1 decimeter is equal to 0.01 dam 

The International Bureau of Weights and Measures established the decameter, sometimes known as dekameter. The symbol dam represents it. It is used to measure length under the International System of Units and is equivalent to 10 meters in all. While any combination of unit and SI prefix can be used, several are rarely used in practice. When measuring length, the decameter is more commonly used than other units.

Converting Decameter To Decimeter

The conversion between decameter and decimeters is possible as they are both units for length. Let’s take a look at the formula used for the conversion of decameter to decimeter,

1 dam = 100 dm 

Basically, 1 decameter is equal to 100 decimeters 

 Or we can write as 1 dam = dam × 100 dm

Conversion Table 

Decimeter Decameter
1 0.01 dam
2 0.02 dam 
3 0.03 dam 
4 0.04 dam 
5 0.05 dam 
6 0.06 dam 
7 0.07 dam 
8 0.08 dam 
9 0.09 dam 
10 0.1 dam

Sample Questions

Question 1: Convert 25 decameter to decimeters?

Solution: 

We have decameter = 25 dam 

 To convert we will use formula:                                        

1 dam = 100 dm 

So 25 dam = 25 × 100 dm 

= 2500 dm 

Therefore 25 decameter is equal to 2500 dm.   

Question 2: Convert five decameters to decimeters?

Solution:  

We have decameter = 5 dam

To convert we will use formula:                                        

1 dam = 100 dm

5 dam = 5 × 100 dm

= 500 dm

Therefore 5 decameter is equal to 500 dm.   

Question 3: Convert  0.250 decameter to decimeters?

Solution: 

Decameter = 0.250 dam

To convert we will use formula,                                     

1 dam = 100 dm

So 0.250 dam = 0.250 × 100 dm

= 25 dm

Therefore 0.250 decameter is equal to 25 dm.   

Question 4: Convert 50 decimeters into decameters?

Solution: 

Decimeter = 50 dm

To convert we will use formula,                   

1 dam = 100 dm

1 dm = 1/100 dam 

Now, convert 50 decimeter

50 dm = 50/100 dam 

= 0.5 dam  

Therefore 50 decimeter is equal to 0.5 decameter. 

Question 5: Convert 12 decameter to decimeters?

Solution:  

We have decameter = 12 dam

To convert we will use formula,                                    

1 dam = 100 dm

So 12 dam = 12 × 100 dm

= 1200 dm

Therefore 12 decameter is equal to 1200 dm.  

Question 6: Convert 15.6 decameter to decimeter?

Solution:  

Decameter = 15.6 dam

To convert we will use formula,                                        

1 dam = 100 dm

15.6 dam = 15.6 × 100 dm

= 1560 dm

Therefore 15.6 decameter is equal to 1560 dm.
