How to convert square meters to hectares (m² to ha)
The formula for converting square meters to hectares is: ha = m² ÷ 10000. To calculate the square meter value in hectares first substitute the square meter value into the preceding formula, and then perform 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
In other words, 1 square meter is equal to 0.0001 hectares.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 square meters to hectares is:
- Understand the conversion formula: ha = m² ÷ 10000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for m² so the formula becomes: ha = 5 ÷ 10000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 ÷ 10000 = 0.0005 ha
In summary, 5 square meters is equal to 0.0005 hectares.
Converting hectares to square meters
In order to convert the other way around i.e. hectares to square meters, you would use the following formula: m² = ha × 10000. To convert hectares to square meters first substitute the hectare value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 hectare in square meters we follow these steps:
m² = ha × 10000
m² = 1 × 10000
m² = 10000
Or in other words, 1 hectare is equal to 10000 square meters.
