  • Area:
    • 1 square inch (in²) = 6.4516 square centimeters (cm²)
    • 1 square foot (ft²) = 144 square inches = 0.092903 square meters (m²)
    • 1 square yard (yd²) = 9 square feet = 0.836127 square meters
    • 1 acre (ac) = 43,560 square feet = 4047 square meters
  • Volume:
    • 1 fluid ounce (fl oz) = 29.5735 milliliters (mL)
