Type the value in kilometers you want to convert to decameters.
Enter a value
Using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many decameters are in "X" kilometers (X is the number of kilometers you want to convert to decameters).
1 kilometer (km) is equal to 100.0 decameters (dam)
1 decameter (dam) is equal to 0.01 kilometers (km)
In order to convert a value from kilometers to decameters (from km to dam), simply type the number of kilometers to be converted to decameters into the box provided and then click on the “convert” button. To convert from a unit of length other than kilometer, go to All length conversions.
Kilometers to decameters conversion table / chart The conversion table to the right is a default, short version of the kilometers to decameters conversion table. You also have an option to create the kilometers to decameters conversion table for the specific values you need. You can choose the initial value (in kilometers), the increment and the number of rows you want to show up in the conversion table. To create your customized kilometers to decameters conversion table, click on the "create conversion table" button.
The formula for converting a specific value from kilometers to decameters is:
X kilometers * cf = Y decameters
X = the specific value to be converted (in kilometers)
cf = the conversion factor from kilometers to decameters
Y = the result (in decameters)
Sample calculation: let's suppose that you have a value of length of 455 kilometers and want to express it in decameters.
