# Area Table

The Area Units Table of Conversions provides a convenient reference for converting between these units, making it easier to work with area measurements in various applications.

## A short description of area units, listed in the table:

**Metric System:**

**Square Meter (m²):** The square meter is the base unit of area in the metric system. It represents the area of a square with sides of one meter. It's widely used in scientific, engineering, and everyday applications.

**Square Centimeter (cm²):** The square centimeter is a smaller unit of area, and is often used for small-scale measurements, such as in microscopy or for measuring the area of objects.

**Square Millimeter (mm²):** It is an even smaller unit of area, used for very precise measurements, such as in engineering drawings or the manufacturing industry.

**Square Decimeter (dm²),** **Square Dekameter (dam²)**, and **Square Hectometer (hm²)**are large units of area, not commonly used, and are often converted to square kilometers for practical purposes.

**Square Kilometer (km²):** The square kilometer is a unit of area commonly used to measure large areas, such as land masses or countries.

**Are (a):** The are is a metric unit of area equal to 100 square meters. It's commonly used in European countries for measuring land area.

**Hectare (ha):** The hectare is another metric unit of area equal to 10,000 square meters or 1 square hectometer. It's commonly used for measuring large areas of land, such as farms or parks.

**Imperial System:**

**Square Inch (in²)**and **Square Foot (ft²)**are the units of area commonly used in the United States and other countries that follow the imperial system.

**Square Yard (yd²):** The square yard is a larger unit of area, equal to the area of a square with sides of one yard. It's commonly used for measuring areas of land or property.

**Square Mile (mi²):** The square mile is a unit of area commonly used to measure large areas, such as counties or states.

**Acre (ac):** The acre is a unit of area commonly used in the imperial system for measuring land area. It's equal to 43,560 square feet or approximately 4047 square meters.

**Other Systems:**

**Section:** The section is a unit of area used in the United States for measuring land area, especially in land surveying. It's equal to one square mile or 640 acres.

**Square:** The square is a unit of area used in land surveying and real estate. It represents the area of a square plot of land with sides of one unit of measurement, such as one foot or one meter.

**Township:** The township is a unit of area used in the United States and Canada for measuring land area, especially in the context of land surveying and property ownership. It's equal to 36 square miles or approximately 93 square kilometers.
