Enter the area in m2 (square meters):
Enter the width of the linear meter in m (meters):
The result in linear meters (lin.m, lm) is:
The figure below shows the material measured in linear meters:
How to convert a square meter to a linear meter?
You need to divide the area in square meters by the width of a linear meter.
A linear meter is determined by the formula:
L = S / W
L is the length in linear meters (lin. m, lm);
S is the area in square meters (sqm, m2);
W is the width of a linear meter (m).
Figure with legend is shown above.
Find the length of the carpet in linear meters. The area of the carpet is 15 m2, the width of the carpet is 3 m.
L = S / W = 15/3 = 5 lm
