# Square Meters to Feet

## Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

Square meter is considered the SI unit of area. If a square has a side length of exactly 1m, then the area of such a square is defined as 1 square meter. The SI unit of length is ‘meter’ and since area is calculated using length, square meter is simply derived from meter. Square meter can be converted to other units as well and one of the unit to which it can be converted is square feet. These square feet can be in turn converted to feet.

Example 1: Given area of a rectangle is 50sq meters and the width of the rectangle is 21.6feet. Calculate the length of the rectangle in feet.

Area of a rectangle, A = length * width

Given: width of the rectangle, l = 21.6ft

Area of the rectangle, A = 50sq feet

First we should convert the units of area from square meters to square feet.

Standard conversion: 1sq meter = 10.764sqft

This implies Area = 50sq meters = 50 * 10.764 = 538.2sq feet

So length of the rectangle = Area/length= 538.2/ 21.6 = 24.92feet

Example 2: Given area of a square is 18sq meters. Calculate the side lengthof the square in feet.

Area of a square, A = (side length)2

Given: Area of the square, A = 18sq meters

First we should convert the units of area from square meters to square feet.

Standard conversion: 1sq meter = 10.764sqft

This implies Area = 18sq meters = 18 * 10.764 = 193.7sq feet (approximately)

So side length of the square = √(Area)

Area = √(193.7)= 13.92feet (approximately).
