How to convert hectares to square meters (ha to m²)
The formula for converting hectares to square meters is: m² = ha × 10000. To calculate the hectare value in square meters first substitute the hectare value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 hectare in square meters we follow these steps:
m² = ha × 10000
m² = 1 × 10000
m² = 10000
In other words, 1 hectare is equal to 10000 square meters.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 hectares to square meters is:
- Understand the conversion formula: m² = ha × 10000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for ha so the formula becomes: m² = 3 × 10000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 10000 = 30000 m²
In summary, 3 hectares is equal to 30000 square meters.
Converting square meters to hectares
In order to convert the other way around i.e. square meters to hectares, you would use the following formula: ha = m² ÷ 10000. To convert square meters to hectares first substitute the square meter value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 square meter in hectares we follow these steps:
ha = m² ÷ 10000
ha = 1 ÷ 10000
ha = 0.0001
Or in other words, 1 square meter is equal to 0.0001 hectares.
