# Area

## Area is a quantity expressing the two-dimensional size of a defined part of a surface; typically a region bounded by a closed curve. This category includes questions related to the formula for calculating the Area of a surface or how to determine the Area of a surface.

### How much tonnage air conditioner is required for 2779 sq ft?

It depends a great deal on where you live and how well your home
is insulated. Square feet is not a great help when planning the
size of an air conditioner. It is very useful to also have the
cubic feet in the home, along with the sizes and types of
windows.
Where I live in the northwest US, a 3-ton unit would do the
trick easily, but then, we do not get the intensely hot, long
summers as you might in say, Phoenix.

### How many square feet is one acre?

The area of one acre is 43,560 square feet, but there are an
infinite number of different shapes and dimensions an acre could
have.
Here are a few examples:
Square: 208.71 feet on a side (approx.)
Rectangles:
9' x 4840'
10' x 4356'
12' x 3630'
20' x 2178'
24' x 1815'
40' x 1089'
60' x 726'
72' x 605'
120' x 363'
121' x 360'
180' x 242'
Circle: 235.5-ft diameter (approx.)
All 13 of these examples have areas of 1 acre.
One Acre = 43560 sq ft

### How many cubic feet are in a gallon?

Gallons per
cubic foot
1 cubic foot = 7.4805 US gallons
1 cubic foot -=6.2288 Imperial gallons
One cubic foot is equal to 7.4805 US Gallons, -6.2288 Imperial
Gallons
Also,
1 cubic foot = 1728 cubic inches
1 US gallon = 231 cubic inches (by definition)
1 cubic foot = 1728/231 gallons = 576/77 gallons ~= 7.48
gallons
1 US gallon = 231/1728 cubic feet ~= 0.133681 cubic feet
Sample Water Bill Calculation
Assumptions:
Note: . This refers to 100 cubic feet. If your
bill says you used 10 ccf, that would be 1000 cubic feet, or almost
7500 US gallons.
Also: "Water bills" can also include other costs such as sewer and
trash collection. Read your bill closely to determine exactly what
you're paying for.

###### Asked in Units of Measure, Area

### 1 meter how many square feet?

meter is the unit of length ( one dimension) and square feet is
ti unit of area two dimension... there is well the in one meter
there are 100 centimeters and in one feet there are 30 so 1 meter
is about 3 feet and 10 cm . to be exact 1 meter is 3.280 feet
There are no square feet in a meter. A meter is a unit of linear
measure, whereas a square foot is a unit of area measurement. Its a
little like saying "How many gallons in an volt." There are 10.76
square feet in a SQUARE meter, if that's what you were asking.

### How many m2 is 6 acres?

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Algebra, Area

### How many sq ft is 12000 lf?

The question, as stated, cannot be answered sensibly. A square
foot is a measure of area, with dimensions [L2]. A linear foot (lf)
is a measure of distance, with dimensions [L]. The two measure
different things and basic dimensional analysis teaches that you
cannot convert between measures with different dimensions such as
these without additional information.
