Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Unit of length Kilometer into the unit Decimeter and vice versa you can convert Decimeter into Kilometer. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., km to dm or dm to km. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Unit of length.

The unit kilometer belongs to the metric system and is derived from the basic unit meter. Here, 1 kilometer can be converted into 1,000 meters or 1 meter is equivalent to 0.001 kilometers. The kilometer belongs to the International System of Units (SI).

In most parts of the world today, kilometers is the measuring unit used to express distances between geographical locations in the countryside. The United States and the United Kingdom are exceptions to this practice, where miles are used as a measuring unit.

The decimeter unit is part of a metric system and is derived from the basic unit meter. 1 decimeter is equivalent to 0.1 meters and 1 meter is equivalent to 10 decimeters. The prefix "Deci" in decimeters stands for a tenth of the base unit. The decimeter belongs to the International System of Units (SI).
