Kilometers to dekameters (km to dam) conversion factor is 100. To calculate how many dekameters in kilometers, multiply by the conversion factor or use the converter.
1 Kilometer = 100 Dekameters
1 Dekameter = 0.01 Kilometer
For example, to calculate how many dekamaters there are in 20 kilometers, multiply the km value by the conversion factor, 20 km * 100 = 2000 dekameters in 20 km.
Kilometer is a metric unit and equals to 1000 meters. It is used to measure the distance between two geographical locations. The abbreviation is "km".
