# Decameter to Kilometer Calculator

In normal life, we happen to **hear** a particular unit to measure the **distance** that is a **Kilometer**. Have you ever thought about other units measuring **length** or distance? You may haven’t heard because the Kilometer is **widely** used all over the **globe**. But there are many other units to measure the length and distance between two objects including Decameter.

For Mathematics **students**, it is a **common **task to convert one unit to the other for **various** problems. So, it is important to **learn** how to **convert** decameters to kilometers quickly. If you don’t know how to do this, you should use this **Decameter to Kilometer Calculator**. This maths calculator will enable you to convert one measurement given in a particular **unit** to the other within a **second**.

## What is Decameter?

It is a particular unit used to measure the **length/size** of a **small** or medium object. This unit is not used to measure the distance between two **distant** objects. A Decameter is based on an **SI** unit that we call a **meter**. It is a **bigger** unit of meter that is normally used to measure the size of **machines**.

To represent a length in this unit, “**Dam**” will be written on the right side of the **number**. Wherever you will see “**dam **” written with a **number**, it means that the measurement is taken in Decameters.

## What is a Kilometer?

A kilometer is another distance-measuring unit that is used for calculating the **tance** between two **objects**, places, and **points**. Normally, this unit is used to mark the distance from the **destination** on the **roads**. It is also based on the meter which is an SI unit of **length**.

On the roads, you must have seen the **boards ** with writings “**XYZ kilometer or XYZ Km**”. Those boards **actually ** represent the distance of a particular place from your point in Kilometers because “**Km**” is the symbol of this unit.

### How to calculate Dam to Km?

As **mentioned** above, Decameter and Kilometer both are used to measure the **length/distance** with the same **base** unit. It means that they have a particular relationship through which we can **convert** one unit to the other. Here is the **relationship** that you can use for this **conversion** of units.

1 Decameter = 0.01 Kilometer

Similarly, it can also be written as,

1 Kilometer = 100 Decameters

By using these relationships, you can easily convert a measurement from Decameters to Kilometers. Here we have also solved an example for your understanding.

**Example 1:**

Convert 23 Decameters to Kilometers.

**Solution:**

We know that,

1 Decameter = 0.01 Kilometers

So,

23 Dam = 0.01 x 23 Km

= 0.23 Km
