## Definition of the Square Inch

The square inch is defined as the area of a square that has a side length of 1 inch. This is equivalent to 0.00064516 square meter, or 6.4516 square centimeter, or 0.00000003937 square mile.

The square inch is not an official unit in the International System of Units (SI), but it is commonly used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is also a customary unit in some other countries that use the imperial or US customary system of measurement.

## History of the Square Inch

The square inch was derived from the inch, which was originally based on the length of three barleycorns laid end to end. The inch was first standardized by King Edward II of England in 1324, who defined it as equal to three grains of barley, dry and round, placed end to end lengthwise.

The square inch was used as a unit of area for measuring land, buildings, and other objects. It was also used as a unit of pressure, such as pounds per square inch (psi), which is still widely used today.

The square inch was gradually replaced by the metric units of area, such as the square meter and the square centimeter, in most countries that adopted the metric system. However, it is still widely used in some fields and applications, such as engineering, carpentry, printing, and clothing.

## How to Convert Square Inch to Other Units

To convert a square inch to other units of area, we can use the following conversion factors:

• 1 square inch = 0.00064516 square meter
• 1 square inch = 6.4516 square centimeter
• 1 square inch = 0.00000003937 square mile
• 1 square inch = 0.00001076 square foot
• 1 square inch = 0.0001196 square yard
• 1 square inch = 645.16 square micrometer

To convert from other units to a square inch, we can use the inverse of these conversion factors.

For example, to convert 50 square centimeters to square inches, we can use:

50 square centimeters x (0.155000310 in2 / 1 cm2) = 7.7500155 in2

## Where Square Inch is Used

## History of Square Foot

The concept of measuring area by using squares dates back to ancient times. The ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, and Romans all used different units of area based on squares with different side lengths. For example, the ancient Egyptians used a unit called setat, which was equal to a square with sides of 100 cubits (about 52 meters). The ancient Greeks used a unit called plethron, which was equal to a square with sides of 100 feet (about 30 meters). The ancient Romans used a unit called iugerum, which was equal to a square with sides of 120 feet (about 35 meters).

The modern definition of the square foot was established in the late 18th century by the British Parliament as part of the imperial system. The imperial system was designed to create a uniform and consistent system of measurement based on traditional units that were widely used in Britain and its colonies. The original definition of the foot was derived from an iron rod that was kept in London as a standard measure. The original definition of the square foot was then derived from this definition as the area of a square whose sides are one foot long.

The definition of the foot has been revised several times over the years to improve its accuracy and precision. The current definition of the foot was adopted in 1959 by an international agreement as “the length equal to 0.3048 meter exactly”. The current definition of the square foot is then derived from this definition as before.
