Area Conversion

In units of area conversion we will learn how to convert the units. It’s very important to know the relation between the various units while solving the questions on area conversion.


Relation between the various units of area


   Length Units                         Area Units 

  1 m = 100 cm     so,   1 m² = (100 × 100) cm² = 10000 cm²

  1 m = 10 dm       so,   1 m² = (10 × 10) dm² = 100 dm²

  1 cm = 10 mm     so,   1 cm² = (10 × 10) mm² = 100 m²

  1 km = 1000 m    so,   1 km² = (1000 × 1000) m² = 1000000 m² 

  1 hm = 100 m      so,   1 hm² = (100 × 100) m² = 10000 m²
                                                                         = 1 hectare (ha) 

  1 dam = 10 m     so,   1 dam² = (10 × 10) m² = 100 m² = 1 ares 

Notes: 

1 hectare = 100 ares 


Examples on area conversion:

Convert the following units:

(a) 60 cm² in mm²

Solution:

60 cm² in mm²

1 cm = 10 mm

1 cm² = 100 mm²

Therefore, 60 cm² = 60 × 100 mm²

                           = 6000 mm²


(b) 3 hectares in m²

Solution:

3 hectares in m²

1 hectare = 10000 m²

Therefore, 3 hectares = 3 × 10000 m²

                                = 30000 m²


(c) 12000 m² in hectares

Solution:

12000 m² in hectares

10000 m² = 1 hectare

Therefore, 12000 m²    = 1/10000 × 12000 hectare

                                  = 12/10 hectare

                                  = 6/5 hectare


(d) 2.3 hectares in ares

Solution:

2.3 hectares in ares

1 hectare = 100 ares

Therefore, 2.3 hectares = 2.3 × 100 ares

                                   = 230 ares.
