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
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 .
Convert 2.5 hectares to square meters.
= 2.5 x 10,000
= 25,000 m² .
