## 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 below.
• 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.
