How to convert square kilometers to hectares (km² to ha)
The formula for converting square kilometers to hectares is: ha = km² × 100. To calculate the square kilometer value in hectares first substitute the square kilometer value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 square kilometer in hectares we follow these steps:
ha = km² × 100
ha = 1 × 100
ha = 100
In other words, 1 square kilometer is equal to 100 hectares.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 square kilometers to hectares is:
- Understand the conversion formula: ha = km² × 100
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for km² so the formula becomes: ha = 8 × 100
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 100 = 800 ha
In summary, 8 square kilometers is equal to 800 hectares.
Converting hectares to square kilometers
In order to convert the other way around i.e. hectares to square kilometers, you would use the following formula: km² = ha ÷ 100. To convert hectares to square kilometers first substitute the hectare value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 hectare in square kilometers we follow these steps:
km² = ha ÷ 100
km² = 1 ÷ 100
km² = 0.01
Or in other words, 1 hectare is equal to 0.01 square kilometers.
