Formula used to convert *m* to *dm*:

For example, if you want to convert 1 *m* to *dm*, just replace **x** by **1** [m]:

- Multiply the amount of meters by 10.
- The result will be expressed in decimeters.

A **meter** (if you are in America or the Philippines) or **metre** (the rest of the countries), is the base unit of measurement of length in the International System of Units (SI). The symbol used to express meters is **m**. A meter is defined as the distance travelled by light in vacuum in 1/299.792.458 of second.

The meter/metre is being used for measuring length, width and height in almost every country in the world, except in the US, where they use the Imperial/US customary units.

The meter was not always defined as the distance travelled by light in vacuum in a period of time. It was originally defined (in 1793) as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole. Later, in 1799, it was redefined in terms of a prototype metre bar (which has been redefined several times). In 1960, the metre was redefined in terms of a certain number of wavelengths of a certain emission line of krypton-86. And finally, in 1983, the current definition was adopted (the vacuum definition).

The **decimeter** is a unit of length in the metric system (SI), equal to one tenth of a metre (i.e. 1 dm is equal to 0.1 meters).
