Dear convert-me.com 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 convert-me.com FaceBook page

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

Meter is a mesure of length (distance).
Square meter is a measure of area.
Cubic meter is a measure of volume (capacity).

How to convert length to area? There is no answer to this question, because these are different measurements. It's not a question of conversion.

You can calculate area of an object if you know its form and dimentions.

If your object is a square, its area equals to side lengths squared. I.e. if side length is 2 meters, the area is 2*2=4 square meteres.

If you have a cube, its volume equals to its side length cubed. I.e. if side length is 2 meters, the volume of the cube is 2*2*2=8 cubic meters.

For more complex objects the formulas would be different.
