# What is 8' square rug in metric measurements?

Your question isn't clear. Do you only want 8' in metric measurements, or are you looking for the area of the rug in metric measurements? If you want 8' in metric measurement…s, then you only need to convert 8' to meters, centimeters or millimeters. I think that meters makes the most sense. You need to look up how many meters are in 1 ft. There are 0.305 meters in 1 ft. Now to do the calculation: 8 ft. x 0.305 m/ft = 2.438 m. If you are looking for the area, again you have to decide if you want square meters, square centimeters, etc. Square meters makes the most sense to me. If each side of the rug is 2.438 m, and the rug is square, then the area is 2.438 m x 2.438 m = (2.438 m)2 = 5.944 m2, or in other words 5.944 square meters.

# What do you call metric unit used to measure temperature?

Metric temperature is measured in degrees Celsius; where o.o deg C is the normal freezing point of pure water and 100.0 deg C is the normal boiling point of pure water. Man…y applications, such as the Ideal Gas Law, require use of absolute temperature. The metric system units for absolute temperature are degrees Kelvin or Kelvin degrees. T in K = T in C + 273.15
