### How long is a linear meter?

The same as a meter. It is called "linear" to distinguish it
from square or cubic meter, but the "linear" can really be
omitted.

###### Asked in Units of Measure, Manufacturing, Area, Length and Distance

### How many meters in a linear meter?

The meter is, by definition, a unit of distance or linear
measurement. It is not necessary to say "linear," unless you are
emphasizing the difference from square meters or cubic meters.
So, to answer your question, there is one linear meter per
meter, because they are one and the same.
Another answer
A linear meter is a commonly-used phrase and description for
lengths of fabric.
A linear meter is a meter length from a roll of fabric. Usually
in Europe the width of the roll is 1.46m, so a linear meter is an
oblong 1m x 1.46m
So (in this particular example):
1 x Linear Meter = 1.46 square metersOne.
