# What is the metric unit for surface area?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 10/05/2007

the base unit would be meters or meters squared

<P>

<P>Square meter. Actually there is no unit for area, only one for length...the meter. Area and volume (and a host of others) are derivative units of measure. The primary units are "MKS" meter-kilogram-seconds.</P>
