## How to convert

1 decimeter (dm) = 0.32808399 foot (ft). Decimeter (dm) is a unit of Length used in Metric system. Foot (ft) is a unit of Length used in Standard system.

## Decimeter: A Unit of Length

The decimeter (dm) is a unit of length in the metric system, which is the most widely used system of measurement in the world. The decimeter is equal to one tenth of a meter, which is the SI base unit of length. The decimeter is also a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI), which is the official system of measurement for science and engineering. The symbol for decimeter is dm. The decimeter is used for measuring medium distances and dimensions, such as the height of a bookshelf or the width of a door. The decimeter is also used for measuring volumes, such as the volume of a cube or a box. The decimeter is named after the deci prefix, which means one tenth in Latin. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, usage and conversion of the decimeter as a unit of length.

## How to Convert Decimeter

The decimeter can be converted to other units of length by using conversion factors or formulas. Here are some examples of how to convert decimeters to other units of length in the SI system, the US customary system and other systems:

• To convert decimeters to centimeters, multiply by 10. For example, 10 dm = 10 × 10 = 100 cm.
• To convert decimeters to meters, divide by 10. For example, 10 dm = 10 / 10 = 1 m.
• To convert decimeters to kilometers, divide by 10000. For example, 10 dm = 10 / 10000 = 0.001 km.
• To convert decimeters to inches, multiply by 3.937. For example, 10 dm = 10 × 3.937 = 39.37 in.
• To convert decimeters to feet, multiply by 0.328. For example, 10 dm = 10 × 0.328 = 3.28 ft.
Decimeters also can be marked as decimetres.

## Foot: A Unit of Length

The foot (ft) is a unit of length used in the US customary system, which is one of the systems of measurement used in the United States and some other countries. The foot is equal to 12 inches or 0.3048 meter. The foot is also a derived unit in the imperial system, which is the official system of measurement for the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth countries. The symbol for foot is ft or ′. The foot is used for measuring short distances and dimensions, such as the height of a person or the width of a door. The foot is named after the human foot, which was used as a standard of measurement in ancient times. In this article, we will explore the definition, history, usage and conversion of the foot as a unit of length.

## How to Convert Foot

The US customary system is a system of measurement that uses units such as inch, yard, mile, ounce, pound, gallon, etc. The US customary system is based on the English system of measurement that was used before the adoption of the metric system.

To convert foot to other units of length in the US customary system, we need to know the relationship between foot and other units. Here are some common units and their equivalent values in feet:

• 1 inch = 1/12 foot
• 1 yard = 3 feet
• 1 mile = 5280 feet
• 1 fathom = 6 feet
• 1 rod = 16.5 feet
• To convert foot to any of these units, we need to multiply or divide by the appropriate factor. For example, to convert 10 feet to inches, we need to multiply by 12:

10 feet x 12 = 120 inches

To convert 10 feet to miles, we need to divide by 5280:

10 feet / 5280 = 0.00189 miles

To convert 10 feet to fathoms, we need to divide by 6:

10 feet / 6 = 1.667 fathoms

To convert 10 feet to rods, we need to divide by 16.5:

10 feet / 16.5 = 0.606 rods

The SI system (or International System of Units) is a system of measurement that uses units such as meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole, candela, etc. The SI system is based on the metric system that was developed in France in the late 18th century.

To convert foot to other units of length in the SI system, we need to know the relationship between foot and meter. The meter is the base unit of length in the SI system and it is defined as “the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 seconds.” One foot is equal to 0.3048 meters.

To convert foot to any other unit of length in the SI system, we need to multiply or divide by the appropriate power of ten and add a prefix. Here are some common units and their equivalent values in meters:

• 1 kilometer = 1000 meters
• 1 centimeter = 0.01 meter
• 1 millimeter = 0.001 meter
• 1 micrometer = 0.000001 meter
• 1 nanometer = 0.000000001 meter
• To convert foot to any of these units, we need to multiply by the appropriate factor and add a prefix.
