## How to Convert decimeter to millimeter

To convert a decimeter measurement(dm) to a millimeter measurement(mm), multiply the length by the conversion ratio. Since one decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from decimeter to millimeter?

millimeter=dm * 100

### Convert 5 decimeters to Millimeter

5 dm = (5 * 100) = 50mm

### Convert 10 decimeters to Millimeter

10 dm = (10 * 100) = 1000 mm

### Convert 100 decimeters to Millimeter

100 dm = (100 * 100) = 10,000mm

## Decimeter

### What is an Decimeter?

A decimeter is a unit of length in the metric system. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter. Since a meter is 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one Decimeter measures 10 cm.

Decimeter can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Decimeter can be written as 1dm.

### What is the Decimeter used for?

A decimeter is not widely used but is an important unit. In real life, we rarely find measurements written in decimetres. Since one meter is not a very long length, it is easier to use 0.1 m or 0.5 m when the length is shorter than a meter.

## Millimeter

### What is a Millimeter?

A millimeter (mm) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined in terms of the meter as 1/1000 of a meter, or the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 000 of a second.

A millimeter can be abbreviated as mm; for example, 1 millimeter can be written as 1mm.

### What is the millimeter used for?

Millimeters are used to measure small but visible-scale distances and lengths. In terms of real-world comparisons, a millimeter is roughly the size of the wire used in a standard paper clip. It is also sometimes used mm Japan (as well as other countries) mm relation to electronic parts, like the size of display screens.
