# Area Conversion Calculator

The Area Conversion Calculator is an online tool that allows you to convert one unit of area into another. Enter the unit of area you would like to convert into the corresponding field below. The results are given both for the basic SI units as well as for other units (e.g. hectare). If you are looking for the answer to the question 1 hectare how much is m2? Enter 1 in the field corresponding to hectares and read the result in the field corresponding to square metres.

The Surface Unit Converter is an online tool that converts different surface units between each other in a very simple and fast way.

The Area Unit Calculator is available online and is easy to use. All you have to do is enter a value for the area in one unit, and the calculator will work out its value in the other units.

Here are a few examples of how you can use the unit of area calculator:

1. If you know the dimensions of your room in feet, do you want to know how many square metres it is? Just enter the length and width of the room in feet into the calculator. The calculator will give you the area in square metres.
2. Do you want to know how many litres of paint you need to paint a wall? If you know the wall's area in square metres. Just enter the area of the wall in square metres into the calculator and the calculator will work out how many litres of paint you need to paint it.
3. Do you want to know how much wood you need to build a garden pavilion if you know the area of the pavilion in square metres? Just enter the area of the gazebo in square metres into the calculator. The calculator will tell you how much wood you need.

The unit of area calculator is a useful tool that can help you in a wide range of different situations.

The following area units are available:

• square millimetre [mm2]
• square centimetre [cm2]
• square inch [in2]
• square foot [ft2]
• square yard [yd2]
• square metre [m2]
• ar [a]
• hectare [ha]
• acre [ac]
• square kilometre [km2]
• square mile [mi2]

With this conversion factor you will know the answers to the following questions: 1 acre how much m2, 1 hectare how much m2, etc.

### What is a unit of area?

An area unit is a unit of measurement used to determine the size or area of a given flat surface. This means that a unit of area can be used to measure the size of a surface or area such as a field, plot, room, continent and so on.

In the metric system, the most commonly used unit of area is the square metre (m²). This is the area of a square with a side length of one metre. However, other units of area such as the square centimetre (cm²), square kilometre (km²) or hectare (ha) may also be used, depending on the context and application.

Other measurement systems use different units of area. For example, in the Imperial system the basic unit is the square foot (square ft²) and in the British system the acre (acre).

Depending on the context and measurement needs, it is important to use the appropriate units of area.

### Different units of area

The most obvious unit of area is the square metre [m2]. However, there are others that are commonly used, for example, in agriculture, forestry and surveying. These include

• Hectare - denoted by the symbol ha. 1 ha = 10000 m2 The name comes from the prefix hekto- meaning 100 and the name of the unit of measurement ar.
• ar - is denoted by the symbol a. 1 a = 100 m2. The name is derived from the French are from the Latin area, meaning square; threshing floor; playing field.
• Acre - a unit of land area, the name of which comes from acre and is used in Anglo-Saxon countries. 1 acre = 4046.8564224 m2.

#### Who might find an area unit calculator useful?

An area unit calculator can be useful for a wide range of people and in a variety of situations. Here are a few examples of this

1. Architects and designers: An area unit calculator can help architects and designers calculate the area of buildings, rooms and spaces, and plan the layout and arrangement of elements.
2. Real estate: Real estate professionals, such as estate agents, property developers and property managers, can use the Area Unit Calculator to assess the value of property and to determine rents or rental costs based on area.
3. Farmers and gardeners: For farmers and gardeners, the area unit calculator can be useful for calculating the size of plots of land, fields or gardens, as well as for planning and estimating the amount of seed, fertiliser or materials needed to plant an area.
4. Industry and manufacturing: In industry and manufacturing, the area unit calculator can be used to calculate the area of production, the use of materials, to evaluate productivity, or to plan the layout and arrangement of equipment.
5. Retail: For retail shops, restaurants or hotels, the area unit calculator can be used for planning and evaluation of sales area, storage area, restaurant area or the number of rooms available.
6. Students and teachers: An area unit calculator can also be useful in the education sector, especially in the fields of mathematics, geometry and science, where area-related calculations are required.

These are just a few examples, of course, and a surface area calculator can be useful in many different situations.
