Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How do I convert M2 to M3.


I'm assuming you mean m^2 (square meters) and m^3 (cubic meters).

The answer . . . you can't convert. Why? Square meters is a two dimensional area. To get a cubic measure (volume), you need a third dimension, making it, well, three dimensional.

well, technically you can convert--but the answer will always be infinity ;p
or undefined if you go the other way

convert 2.34m/s into miles/hr

well you take the square meter and you multiply it by the thickness of what you want to convert.
for eg:
if you have a 200m^2 floor and you want to cover it with cement which is 10cm thick then you say:
200 * 0.1 = 20 m^3

convert cm to meters and then convert k
:D enjoy
