Hectares(ha) are non-SI metric unit of area equal to a square with 100 meter sides and is mostly used in the measurement of land.

Meter squared is also a unit of area and is abbreviated as m².

**Formula to convert ha to m² .**

Since we have been told that one hectare is equivalent to the area of a square whose side is 100m.

Therefore, to know the relationship between one hectare and meters squared, we find the area of the square.

**Area = Side x Side**

**= 100 x 100**

**= 10,000**

From this we can conclude that the 1 ha is equivalent to 10,000 m².

In conclusion, we can say that, when you want to convert hectares to meters squared you multiply the hectares by 10,000m² .

**Example:**

Convert 2.5 hectares to square meters.

**= 2.5 x 10,000**

**= 25,000** **m² .**
