Meter to Dekameter Converter

How to convert from meters to dekameters?

To convert a distance or length from meters or m to dekameters or hm, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Write down the length value in meters (m).
  2. Multiply it by the value of a meter-to-dekameter conversion factor: 0.1.
  3. The result from multiplication is the value of a length or distance in dekameters or dkm.

Meters to dekameters formula

Here is the equation to find the length or distance in dekameters (dkm) when knowing the n-meters (m): n (m) = n × 0.1 (dkm).

Fraction formula for converting from meters to dkm:

$$n\ \text{dekameters} = \frac{n\ \text{meters}}{10}$$

Decimal formula:

$$dkm= m \times 0.1$$

Or remember the conversion factor: 1 m = 0.1 dkm.

$$1\ m = 0.1\ dkm$$

Examples

How to convert 132 meters to dekameters?

Write down 132 meters and multiply it by the meter-to-dekameter conversion factor: 0.1 to get dekameters:

$132\ m = 132 \times 0.1 = 13.2\ dkm$

So 132 meters is equal to 13.2 dekameters or 13.2 hm.

How to convert 200 meters to dekameters?

Write down 200 meters and divide it by 10 to get dekameters:

$200\ m = \frac{200}{10} = 20\ dkm$

So 200 meters is equal to 20 dekameters or 20 dkm.

Alternatively, you can use our calculator by entering 200 into the meter box, and you instantly get the length in dekameters, in this case, 20 dkm.

FAQs

When should we use dekameters to measure a distance?

The dekameter unit isn't often used in everyday life since a dekameter is just ten meters, which isn't much different in value. However, one of its best use cases is to measure the length of a city block. A standard city block has a typical distance of around ten dekameters.

How many meters are there in a dekameter?

There are 10 meters in a dekameter. Deka- or dk- is an official SI prefix denoting multiplication by 10.

Is meters or dekameters bigger?

A dekameter is ten times bigger than a meter. The meter is the base unit of metric length in the International System of Units (SI), while a dekameter equals ten meters.
