What is a Foot?
A foot (ft) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. One Foot contains 12 inches, and one yard comprises three feet.
The Foot can be abbreviated as ft; for example, 1 Foot can be written as 1ft.
What is the Foot used for?
The Foot is primarily used in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for everyday applications. In the US, height and shorter distances are commonly measured using feet and inches. Feet are also widely used to measure altitude and elevation (such as that of a mountain). The international Foot corresponds to human feet with shoe sizes 13 (UK), 14 (US male), 15.5 (US female), or 46 (EU).
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.
