What is Area

In geometry, the area is defined as the space filled by a flat form or the surface of an object.

The area of a figure is the number of unit squares that cover the surface of a closed-form. The area is calculated in square units such as square centimetres, square footage, square inches, etc.

The term “area” comes from the Latin word “area,” which means “an unoccupied patch of level ground.” Unfortunately, the origin also led to an erroneous definition of the area as “a certain quantity of space encompassed inside a set of limits.”

How to Calculate Area

The area is computed by multiplying a shape’s length by its width. In this scenario, even if the rectangle wasn’t on squared paper, we could calculate its area by multiplying 6cm x 6cm = 36cm2 (the shape is not drawn to scale).

The area conversion calculator may be used in any order; simply enter the information you already know, select the units you want to convert to, and you’ll get the results in no time. In addition, our area converter is convenient when converting across systems, such as square feet to acres. As in the previous cases, the tool will quickly return your results.
