Many people don’t know about the land area measurement units and how to convert the bigger units into subunits? another issue is that they don’t know how to measure the irregular-shaped land area? That’s why people asking other people to calculate or measure the land area of their fields or plots. Sometimes people become victims of fraud, because of a lack of knowledge of land area measurement units.
If you also don’t know how to measure and calculate the land area this post will resolve your problems related to the field area measurement. This article is very important for the farmers and the person who wants to sell or purchase new land or divide the field area into equal parts. or working as a property dealer.
Steps and formula to measure the land area of a field correctly
Ready to know. Now I’m going to tell you to step by step “how to measure the area of a field or a plot area”. To measure field or plot area you need to know about basic measure area units as explained below.
Step 1: Let’s know about some basic units of measurement and their conversion.
conversion of units
1 CM = 10 MM
2.54 CM = 1 INCH
12 INCH = 1 FOOT
3 FEET = 1 YARD =36 INCH
3.28 FEET =1 METER =100 CM
5.5 FOOT = 1 KARM
Step2: Let’s know about some 2D or Area units
- SQUARE FEET
- SQUARE YARD
- SQUARE METER
- SQUARE KARM
- KILLA (ACRE)
1 SQUARE FOOT =12 INCH X 12 INCH =144 SQUARE INCH
1 SQUARE YARD = 3 FEET X 3 FEET = 9 SQUARE FEET
1 SQUARE METER =100 CM X 100 CM = 10.7584 SQUARE FEET
1 SQUARE KARM OR SARASAI = 5.5 FEET X 5.5 FEET = 30.25 SQUARE FEET
1 MARLA =9 SARASAI =272.25 SQUARE FEET
1 KANAL =20 MARLA =180 SARASAI = 5445 SQUARE FEET
1 KILLA = 8 KANAL =160 MARLA =1440 SARSAI = 43560 SQUARE FEET
= 1 ACRE = 110 YARD X 44 YARD = 43560 SQUARE FEET
1 HECTARE =100 METER X100 METER =10000 SQUARE METER
= 10000 X10.7584 = 107584 SQUARE FEET
divide field area into a regular geometrical shape such as triangles, rectangles, trapezium to measure field area accurately.
if the field is irregular in shape then divide this into triangles and calculate the area of each triangle sum of all triangle areas is the total area of the figure.
select a unit of measurement in which all the measurements will be done. directly measure the dimensions of the geometrical figure, and after that applying mathematical formula calculate the exact land area of the field.
Formulas of area calculation for triangular-shaped land area
- ½ x length x height = area of a right-angled triangle
- ½ X A x A = area of isosceles triangle (two sides equal triangle)
- Under root of s (s-a)x(s-b ) x(s-c) = area of sclane triengle (heron formula for the triangle of all sides with different sizes)
The formula of area calculation for rectangular shaped land
= length x width
The formula of area calculation for trapezium shape
= 1/2 x (a+b) x height
a and b are parallel sides.
By the above steps and formula for calculating or measure the land area of a field, anyone can measure the land area of their fields and can help others to find the area of any shaped field. linear measurement can be done with the help of tape or a chain.
