How do I convert from tonnes to square metres

Ad

You don't. Tonnes is a weight and Square metres is an area (volume?)

First, we need to determine the number of square units in the Imperial system. We can choose to do the calculation in feet or inches.

Let's do it in inches first. There are 12" in a foot, so we multiply 90,000 by 12 to get 1,080,000 linear inches. Multiplying this by 41.3", we get 44,604,000 square inches. We can convert this to square feet by dividing the number of square feet by the square inches in a square foot. Since a square foot is one foot by one foot, or 12 inches by 12 inches, there are 144 square inches in a square foot. Dividing our previous answer by 144 will give us 309,750 square feet.

Converting to square metres. An inch is defined as 2.54 centimetres ("cm"). Thus, there are 2.54cm x 2.54cm in a square inch or 6.4516cm^2 in a square inch.

Using the 44,604,000 square inches we got above, and multiplying this by 6.4516, we get 287,767,166.4 square cm. There are 100 cm in a metre, so there are 100cm x 100cm in a square metre. So there are 10,000 square centimetres in a square metre. I get 28,776.7 square metres.

There are 3.280839895 feet in a metre. So there are 3.280839895 x 3.280839895, or 10.76391042 square feet in a square metre. Taking 309,750 square feet and dividing by the 10.76391042 we get 28,776.7 square metres.

Good luck.

That depends on the density of the substance.

11.5 tonnes of water is 11.5 cubic meters.

11.5 tonnes of gold is a little more than half a cubic meter.

That depends on the density of the sand. Tonne is a measure of mass, cubic metre is a measure of volume. One tonne of water is one cubic metre. One tonne of a "light" sand might occupy about one cubic metre. One tonne of gold dust would occupy quite a bit less space.

I hope you mean square metres because you can't convert metres (length) to acres (area).

60600 square metres is about 14.97 acres. 15 acres would be about 60700 square metres.

Simply square the conversion factor between feet and metres to get the conversion factor between square feet and square metres.

One foot is 0.3048 metres, so squaring that gives one square foot is 0.09290304 square metres.

Cubic metre is a measure of volume. Tonne is a measure of weight (or mass). The weight of 5 cubic metres of something depends on the density of that something.

5 cubic metres of air weighs a fraction of a tonne. 5 cubic metres of water weighs 5 tonnes. 5 cubic metres of lead weighs about 56 tonnes.
