## Definition of the Square Kilometer

A square kilometer is a unit of area that measures the size of a surface. It is defined as the area of a square whose sides are one kilometer long. A square kilometer is equal to 1,000,000 square meters, 100 hectares, or 0.386102 square miles. It is also the base unit of area in the metric system.

## How to Convert Square Kilometer to Other Units

To convert a square kilometer to other units of area, we need to multiply or divide by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a number that relates two units of measurement. For example, to convert a square kilometer to a square mile, we need to multiply by 0.386102, which is the conversion factor between these two units. Here are some common conversion factors for square kilometer and other units of area:

• 1 square kilometer = 0.386102 square miles
• 1 square kilometer = 247.105 acres
• 1 square kilometer = 100 hectares

## Where Square Kilometer is Used

The square kilometer is widely used around the world as a standard unit of area measurement. It is used for various purposes, such as measuring the size of countries, regions, cities, lakes, islands, parks, forests, and more. Different countries may have different preferences or regulations for using the square kilometer or other units of area in different applications. Here are some examples:

• In most countries, the square kilometer is used for measuring the area of countries and regions.
• In the United States, the square mile is more commonly used for measuring the area of states and counties, but the square kilometer is also used for some purposes, such as census data and environmental reports.
• In Canada, the square kilometer is used for measuring the area of provinces and territories, but the acre and the hectare are also used for measuring smaller areas of land.
• In Australia and New Zealand, the square kilometer is used for measuring the area of states and territories, but the hectare is also used for measuring smaller areas of land.

• In China, the square kilometer is used for measuring the area of provinces and municipalities, but the mu and the hectare are also used for measuring agricultural land.

## History of Square Kilometer

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 kilometer was established in 1795 by the French Academy of Sciences as part of the metric system. The metric system was designed to create a universal and rational system of measurement based on natural phenomena and decimal multiples. The original definition of the meter was one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian. The original definition of the square kilometer was then derived from this definition as the area of a square whose sides are one thousand meters long.

The definition of the meter has been revised several times over the years to improve its accuracy and precision. The current definition of the meter was adopted in 1983 by the General Conference on Weights and Measures as “the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 second”. The current definition of the square kilometer is then derived from this definition as before.

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 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.
