# 2 decimeters in kilometers

## Conversion

2 decimeters is equivalent to 0.0002 kilometers.[1]

## Conversion formula How to convert 2 decimeters to kilometers?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{dm}=0.0001\mathrm{km}$

We can set up a proportion to solve for the number of kilometers.

$1 ⁢ dm 2 ⁢ dm = 0.0001 ⁢ km x ⁢ km$

Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{km}=\frac{2\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.0001\mathrm{km}\to x\mathrm{km}=0.0002\mathrm{km}$

Conclusion: $2 ⁢ dm = 0.0002 ⁢ km$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that 1 kilometer is equal to 5000 times 2 decimeters.

It can also be expressed as: 2 decimeters is equal to $\frac{1}{\mathrm{5000}}$ kilometers.

## Approximation

An approximate numerical result would be: two decimeters is about zero kilometers, or alternatively, a kilometer is about five thousand times two decimeters.
