Square Yard: A Unit of Area

Definition of the Square Yard

A square yard 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 yard long. A square yard is equal to 9 square feet, 1296 square inches, or 0.836127 square meters. It is also a common unit of area in the United States customary system and the imperial system.

How to Convert Square Yard to Other Units

To convert a square yard 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 yard to a square meter, we need to multiply by 0.836127, which is the conversion factor between these two units. Here are some common conversion factors for square yard and other units of area:

  • 1 square yard = 0.836127 square meters
  • 1 square yard = 9 square feet
  • 1 square yard = 1296 square inches
  • 1 square yard = 0.000206612 acres
  • 1 square yard = 0.000000322831 square miles
  • 1 square yard = 8361.27 square centimeters
  • 1 square yard = 8361270 square millimeters

Where Square Yard is Used

The square yard is widely used in the United States, the United Kingdom, and some other countries as a standard unit of area measurement. It is used for various purposes, such as measuring the size of carpets, fabrics, lawns, gardens, sports fields, and more. Different countries may have different preferences or regulations for using the square yard or other units of area in different applications. Here are some examples:

  • In the United States, the square yard is used for measuring the area of carpets, fabrics, and lawns.
  • In the United Kingdom, the square yard is used for measuring the area of fabrics, gardens, and sports fields.
  • In India, the square yard is used for measuring the area of land parcels and plots.
  • In Pakistan, the square yard is used for measuring the area of land parcels and plots.
  • In Canada, the square meter is more commonly used for measuring the area of carpets, fabrics, and lawns, but the square yard is also used for some purposes.
  • In Australia and New Zealand, the square meter is more commonly used for measuring the area of carpets, fabrics, and lawns, but the square yard is also used for some purposes.

History of Square Yard

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 yard 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 yard was derived from an iron rod that was kept in London as a standard measure. The original definition of the square yard was then derived from this definition as the area of a square whose sides are one yard long.

The definition of the yard has been revised several times over the years to improve its accuracy and precision. The current definition of the yard was adopted in 1959 by an international agreement as “the length equal to 0.9144 meter exactly”. The current definition of the square yard is then derived from this definition as before.

Hectare: A Unit of Area

A hectare is a unit of area that is primarily used for measuring land in the metric system. It is equal to 10,000 square meters, or 0.01 square kilometer, or 2.471 acres. The symbol for hectare is ha.

Definition of the Hectare

The hectare is defined as the area of a square that has a side length of 100 meters. This is equivalent to 100 ares, where an are is a unit of area equal to 100 square meters.

The hectare is not an official unit in the International System of Units (SI), but it is accepted for use with SI units and internationally recognized by countries that use the metric system. It is also legally used in some domains related to land ownership, planning, and management, such as law, agriculture, forestry, and environmental protection.

History of the Hectare

The word hectare comes from the French word hectare, which in turn comes from the Greek word hekaton, meaning one hundred. The hectare was introduced in France in 1795 as part of the metric system, which aimed to simplify and standardize the units of measurement.

The hectare was originally intended to be a unit of area equal to one square hectometer, or one hundredth of a square kilometer. However, due to a mistake in the definition of the meter at that time, the actual area of a hectare was slightly larger than intended. This error was corrected in 1889, when the meter was redefined based on the distance between two marks on a platinum-iridium bar kept in Paris.

The hectare became widely used throughout the world for measuring large areas of land, especially in countries that adopted the metric system or had historical ties with France. However, some countries, such as the United Kingdom and the United States, still use other units of area, such as the acre, for some purposes.

How to Convert Hectare to Other Units

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

  • 1 hectare = 10,000 square meters
  • 1 hectare = 0.01 square kilometer
  • 1 hectare = 2.471 acres
  • 1 hectare = 107,639 square feet
  • 1 hectare = 11,960 square yards
  • 1 hectare = 15.4 dunams (a unit used in Israel and Palestine)

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

For example, to convert 50 acres to hectares, we can use:

50 acres x (1 hectare / 2.471 acres) = 20.23 hectares

Where Hectare is Used

The hectare is commonly used in many countries for measuring land area, especially for real estate, agriculture, forestry, and environmental planning. It is also used by some international organizations and conventions for reporting and comparing data on land use and cover.

Some examples of uses of the hectare are:

  • The average size of a farm in Canada in 2016 was 820 hectares.
  • The largest country in the world by area, Russia, has an area of about 1.7 billion hectares.
  • The Amazon rainforest covers about 550 million hectares in South America.
  • The smallest national park in the world by area, Moyenne Island National Park in Seychelles, has an area of about 0.09 hectare.
  • The largest solar power plant in the world by area, Bhadla Solar Park in India, has an area of about 14,000 hectares.

Example Conversions of Hectare to Other Units

Here are some example conversions of a hectare to other units:

  • 1 hectare = 10,000 square meters
  • 1 hectare = 100 ares
  • 1 hectare = 0.01 square kilometer
  • 1 hectare = 2.471 acres
  • 1 hectare = 107,639 square feet
  • 1 hectare = 11,960 square yards
  • 1 hectare = 15.4 dunams
There is no need to add an s to an abbreviation of hectare - ha.
