How to Convert Hectares to Meters


The hectare is a metric unit of land-area measurement that originated in France in the 1800's. A hectare is equal to 2.471 acres. A hectare also is equal to 10,000 square meters. If you are dealing with land measurements or if you are studying measurements in a math class, you may need to be able to convert between hectares and meters.

  • Write down the number of hectares you wish to convert to meters.

  • Multiply the number of hectares times 10,000. For instance, if you have seven hectares, multiply 7 times 10,000 to get 70,000.

  • State your answer in "meters squared" or "square meters" since there are 10,000 square meters in every hectare. In this example, your final answer would be 70,000 square meters.
