Centimeters and square feet belong to two different categories of unit measurement. Centimeters gauge singular measurements like width or height. Square feet are composed of two separate foot dimensions and gauge area measurements. To convert area in square feet from centimeters, dimensions in centimeters are needed to first find the area in square centimeters, signified as cm^2, which you can then convert into square feet through a simple conversion factor.
Things You'll Need
- Centimeter measurements
- Area formula
Find the dimensions of the two-dimensional shape in centimeters. For this example, the shape is a rectangle with a height measuring 1,500 cm and a width measuring 1,000 cm.
Calculate the shape's area in square centimeters through its known area formula. In this example, the area is a rectangle, which has an area formula of width multiplied by height. Multiplying 1,500 cm by 1,000 cm results in 1,500,000 cm^2.
Multiply the area in squared centimeters by 0.00107639104 to convert to square foot measurement. Concluding this example, 1,500,000 cm^2 multiplied by 0.00107639104 converts to 1,614.58656 square feet.
