PHY1: AREA

This Unit is about the Area as calculated in O level Physics.

AREA

Area is the region under or within a boundary of an object. Area is measured in square units e.g. cm3, m2, mm2.

Where

1km2 =? m2

[1km]2 = [1000m]2

1km2 = 1000m x 1000m

1km2 = 1,000,000m2

 

And

1m2 =? cm2

[1m] 2 = [100cm]2

1m2 = 1000cm x 100cm

1m2 = 10,000cm2
