Enter the total linear meters in the first direction (m) and the linear meters in the second perpendicular direction (m) into the Square Meters From Linear Meters Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Square Meters From Linear Meters. 

Square Meters From Linear Meters Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Square Meters From Linear Meters.

SM = LM1 * LM2

Variables:

  • SM is the Square Meters From Linear Meters (m^2)
  • LM1 is the total linear meters in the first direction (m) 
  • LM2 is the linear meters in the second perpendicular direction (m) 

How to Calculate Square Meters From Linear Meters?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Square Meters From Linear Meters.


  1. First, determine the total linear meters in the first direction (m). 
  2. Next, determine the linear meters in the second perpendicular direction (m). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = SM = LM1 * LM2.
  4. Finally, calculate the Square Meters From Linear Meters.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total linear meters in the first direction (m) = 15

linear meters in the second perpendicular direction (m) = 20
