# Decameter to Millimeters Calculator

The meter is one of those **units** that have multiple extended units depending on the **size** of the **length** being measured. **Almost 70%** of length measuring units are based on this unit and are used widely all **over** the **world**. This page mainly **focuses** on the conversion of one of the **meter-based** units **Decameters to Millimeters**.

By **reading** about these units, you can learn how to **interconvert** the measurements in these **units**. Sometimes, it may be **hard** for you to do so, **especially** when you have measurements in decimals. You can use a **decameter to millimeters calculator** for this conversion. This maths calculator has been programmed to **perform** this conversion for any particular measurement. Let us tell you about these units in detail and the method to **convert** them,

## What is Decameter?

Decameter is a **rare** unit used to measure the length or distance between **two points**. This unit is not used **commonly** because it is **concerned** with standard-length **objects**. Decameter is based on SI unit of length i.e. **meter**.

The word Decameter has been derived from the Latin word “**deca**” which means 10. It means that the decameter is **equal** to 10 meters. “**Dam**” is used to **represent** a particular measurement in Decameters.

1 Dam = 10 meters

## What is a millimeter?

A Millimeter is another **unit** of length or distance that is used for **small-sized** objects, lines, and shapes. The **suffix** written beside the **milli** shows that this unit is also based on “**meter**” which is an SI unit of length.

As the word milli means **100th**, it means that a millimeter is the **1000th part** of a meter. In simple words, we can say that if we **divide** 1 meter into 1000 parts, every part will be called **1 millimeter**. “mm” is used to represent a measurement in this particular **unit**.

1 meter = 1000 millimeters

### How to Calculate decameter to millimeters?

To learn about the method to convert Decameter to Millimeter, you need to understand the relationship between these two units. As both units are based on the same SI unit, so we can derive a relationship between them using that unit as the bridge.

We know that,

1 Dam = 10 meters

Also,

1 meter = 1000 meters

So,

1 Dam = 10 x 1000 mm

1 Dam = 10000 mm

For your ease, we have also solved an example for this conversion here. You can understand how to do this manually by following this example.

**Example 1:**

Convert 12 Dam to millimeters.

**Solution:**

As we know

1 Dam = 10000 mm

So,

12 Dam = 12 x 10000 mm

= 120000 mm
