## What are Square Meters?

Square meters and hectares are both units of area measurement in the metric system. A square meter is the area of a square with sides that are each one meter long. It is commonly used to measure small areas such as the floor area of a room or the size of a piece of land. One square meter is equal to 10.76 square feet in the imperial system.

Square meters are important for accurately measuring and comparing different sizes of land or property.

## What are Acres?

Acres are units of measurement used to quantify land area. An acre is a unit of area commonly used in the imperial and US customary systems, equal to 43,560 square feet or about 4,047 square meters. Originally, an acre was defined as the amount of land a yoke of oxen could plow in one day. Acres are commonly used in real estate and agriculture to measure the size of land parcels.

While acres are more commonly used in the United States and some other countries following the imperial system, hectares are the preferred unit of measurement in most of the world due to their simplicity and compatibility with the metric system.
