This area converter can convert between different area units, you just need to enter a original value and select the original unit in combobox, converter will quickly calculate all the values of other area units.

Area - a quantity that describes the total amount of space a 2 dimensional shape covers. The units used to describe an area are based on the length of a side of a square, the standard SI unit for area is the square meter.

We use rounding at unit-conversion.info. This means that some results will be rounded to avoid the numbers getting too long. While often rounding works up to a specific decimal place, we’ve decided that limiting the length of the result to 13 digits would be more favorable to keep the results consistent. The converters accept scientific notation and converts immediately.

All you need to do is enter the value of the land area you'd like to convert, then select its available measurement unit, and, finally, select the unit you wish to convert to.

An area calculator is an online tool that helps you convert one unit of measurement of an area into another.Square metre, sq. m, or m2 is similar to square feet; however, the sides of the square in this case are 1 metre (3.28084 foot). It is the SI derived unit used to measure area.Hectare or ha can be defined as the area of a square with sides measuring 100 metres. It is the only unit in use within SI even though it is a non-SI unit.Hectare is primarily used for the measurement of large areas of land like forests, agricultural plots, etc. The European Union primarily uses this unit.With an area unit converter, you can convert hectare into acre, bigha, sq. m, sq. ft. and more.

Acre is part of the imperial US customary units. One acre equals 4,840 sq. yd. or 0.405 hectare. 640 acres make 1 mile.Acre is primarily used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is also used in countries under former British Colonial rule. In India, acre is primarily used to measure agricultural land.A land area converter can convert measurements of acre into sq. ft., sq. m. and other units.

The hectare is a unit of area equal to 10,000 square metres (107,639 sq ft), or one square hectometre (100m x 100m), and is commonly used for measuring land area. It is most commonly used in the surveying profession for day to day legal documents such as land deeds, mortgage surveys, town planning, environmental protection, and other necessary property considerations under the law.

The Are is a unit of area equal to 100 square metres (10m x 10m). It is commonly used for measuring land area. Although the Are is now considered to be outside of the modern International System (SI), it is still used to measure real estate in some European countries.

This area conversion calculator will help you quickly switch between any units of area, from both metric and imperial systems. It can serve as an area converter, letting you switch between acres, hectare, square feet and many others. You can also convert from m2 to ft2. It can also quickly answer how many acres are in a hectare, so you no longer need to argue with your neighbor about who has more land. You can use this tool to switch between dozens of units in a fraction of a second.

#### Definition

Area - a quantity that describes the total amount of space a 2 dimensional shape covers. The units used to describe an area are based on the length of a side of a square, the standard SI unit for area is the square meter.

#### Units of measurement

acre, are (a), barn (b), hectare (ha), homestead, rood, square centimeter (cm²), square foot (ft²), square inch (in²), square kilometer (km²), square meter (m²), square mile, square millimeter (mm²), square rod, square yard (yd²), township (twp)

The area conversion calculator can be used in any order, simply type in the information you know, set the units you're looking to convert to and get the results in no time. Our area converter can be especially useful when you are forced to switch between systems, e.g. convert square feet to acres. As with the previous examples, the tool will return your results immediately.

#### How to convert m2 to ft2?

Although 1 m2 is not equal to 10 or 100 but 10.764ft2, the calculation in this area conversion calculator is very simple. Set the right units and simply type in the base amount. After that, the tool will quickly switch m2 to ft2. The converter also works in opposite direction. Type in the amount of ft2 and m2 will appear in the field next to it.

#### How many acres are in a hectare?

Calculating the amount of acres in a hectare is another standard question that area conversion calculator quickly answers. Although this calculation is very simple (1 hectare = 100 acres), you can use the area converter anyway to make sure you don't miss any zeros in the process. Other custom area conversions can involve calculating square miles to square kilometers or square meters to square yards. Regardless of the choice results are returned in real time without any delay.

#### How to Convert Units of Area

Conversions are performed by using a conversion factor. By knowing the conversion factor, converting between units can become a simple multiplication problem:

S * C = E

Where S is our starting value, C is our conversion factor, and E is our end converted result.

To simply convert from any unit into m2, for example, from 50 ft2, just multiply by the value in the right column in the table.

50 ft2 * 0.09290304 [m2 / ft2] = 4.645152 m2

To convert from m2 back into units in the left column divide by the value in the right column or, multiply by the reciprocal, 1/x.

4.645152 m2 / 0.09290304 [m2 / ft2] = 50 ft2

To convert among any units in the left column, say from A to B, you can multiply by the factor for A to convert A into m2 then divide by the factor for B to convert out of m2. Or, you can find the single factor you need by dividing the A factor by the B factor.

For example, to convert from ft2 to mm2 you would multiply by 0.09290304 then divide by 0.000001. Or, multiply by 0.09290304/0.000001 = 92903.04. So, to convert directly from ft2 to mm2 you multiply by 92903.04.

To understand how to also convert the units follow this example. Say you want to convert from ft2 to m2. Since you can multiply anything by 1 and still retain the original value, but in different units, set it up so that ft will cancel out leaving you with m.

Since:

1 m = 3.28084 ft, 1 m / 3.28084 ft = 1

We can write the conversion as:

1 ft2 = 1 ft2 * (1 m / 3.28084 ft) * (1 m / 3.28084 ft) = 0.0929030 m2

And we now have our factor for conversion from ft2 to m2 since 1 * 0.0929030 = 0.0929030. Note that there are rounding errors in this value. The value in the table, 0.09290304, is more accurate.

Knowing that 1 ft2 = 0.09290304 m2 we can now find the conversion factor for converting back. Dividing both sides of the equation by 0.09290304 we get about 10.7639104 ft2 = 1 m2. So, the conversion factor to multiply by to convert from m2 to ft2 is about 10.7639104.
