 From: square meter To: square yard

### Square meter

Definition: The square meter, or square metre (symbol: m2), is an SI (International System of Units) derived unit of area. It is defined as the area of a square with side measures of one meter, where the meter is currently defined as the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 of a second when expressed in the unit m·s-1, where the second is defined in terms of the cesium frequency, ΔνCs.

History/origin: Area is commonly represented in the form of a square with sides of a specific unit of length, written as "square" followed by the chosen unit of length. The square meter is one of many such units and is derived from the area of a square with sides of one meter.

Current use: The square meter is the SI unit of area, though it is considered an SI derived unit rather than an SI unit. It is most often used to measure land area such as rooms, houses, and large plots of land. As with other SI units, the standard prefixes can be applied to the square meter to signify decimal multiples. Examples of this include the square decameter, square hectometer, and square kilometer. However, these larger measurements are typically not used, as the square meter is already a fairly sizeable measurement, and these prefixes would be referring to large areas that are not commonly referenced. Note that the square meter and its multiples and submultiples are squared, making a square decameter 10,000 times the size of a square meter even though a decameter is 100 times the size of a meter.

### Square yard

Definition: A square yard (symbol: sq yd) is a unit of area in the imperial and United States customary systems of units, defined as the area of a square with one-yard (3 feet, 36 inches, 0.9144 meters) sides.

History/origin: Area is commonly represented in the form of a square with sides of a specific unit of length, written as "square" followed by the chosen unit of length. The square yard is one of many such units

Current use: The square yard is most commonly used as a measure of land area. It is not widely used around the world, but is still used within the United States, Canada, India, and the United Kingdom, to some degree.
