The process of comparing an unknown physical amount to a known quantity is known as measurement. Different units are used to express these physical quantities in different unit systems. The units of length, distance, mass, temperature, and time are all covered by unit conversion. The metric system aids in the conversion of common measurement units such as inches, feet, and decameter into larger measurement units such as inches, feet, and decameter.

Decameter and Centimeter

A decameter is the standard unit of measurement of the length or distance of an object. It is denoted by the symbol dm. 1 decameter is written as 1 dm or 1 dkm. The meaning of “deca” is 10. It clearly indicates that 1 decameter is equal to 10 meters. A centimeter is also a standard unit of measurement of the length or distance of an object. It is denoted by the symbol cm. 1 centimeter is written as 1 cm. It is generally used to measure smaller lengths. It is equal to one-hundredth of a meter.

How to convert Decameter To Centimeter?

The value of 1 decameter is equal to 1000 centimeters. To convert the decameter to the centimeter, we have to multiply the given value of the decameter by a factor of 1000. For example, 20 decameter is converted into centimeters as 20 × 1000 = 20000 centimeters.

 1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

or

a decameter = 1000 a centimeters

Sample Problems

Problem 1: Convert 12 decameters into centimeters.

Solution:

We know,

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

12 decameter = 1000 × 12 centimeters

12 decameter = 12000 centimeters

Problem 2: Convert 30 decameters into centimeters.

Solution:

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

30 decameter = 1000 × 30 centimeters

30 decameter = 30000 centimeters

Problem 3: Convert 27 decameters into centimeters.

Solution:

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

27 decameter = 1000 × 27 centimeters

27 decameter = 27000 centimeters

Problem 4: Convert 4.5 decameter into centimeters.

Solution:

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

4.5 decameter = 1000 × 4.5 centimeters

4.5 decameter = 4500 centimeters

Problem 5: Convert 0.67 decameters into centimeters.

Solution:

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

0.67 decameter = 1000 × 0.67 centimeters

0.67 decameter = 670 centimeters

Problem 6: Convert 10.78 decameter into centimeters.

Solution:

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

10.78 decameter = 1000 × 10.78 centimeters

10.78 decameter = 10780 centimeters

Problem 7: Convert 340 decameters into centimeters.

Solution:

1 decameter = 1000 centimeters

340 decameter = 1000 × 340 centimeters

340 decameter = 340000 centimeters
