# Thread: m2 = how many kg

1. ## m2 = how many kg

I need to figure out how many m2 (meters squared) 80kg is. How do I work it out?

Like some instructions say 10mg/m2 , so Im not sore how much that is for me.

2. It has nothing to do with weight. 80kg of loosely packed bird feathers could be 300 square meters whereas 80kg of lead could be .3 square meters

You need to know the dimensions of the package or whatever it is..

it' not logic kg can't be egal to some m2......!!!

i found this on a website :

1m=3.28ft

so
1m²=(3.28ft)²=10.76ft²
so
100m²=1076ft²

i don't know if that can help you...i try to find a website for you.

4. The tables are usless unless you have dimensions of some sort. Like I said, 80kg of what? Bricks, cotton balls?

Calculating area doesnt have anything to do with weight.

Why ?? 80 kg is 80 kg it could be what you want !! i don't understand what you mean.

he only have to know how many ft2 is eagal to 1m2 and how many pounds is egal to 1kg ...i can "calculate" after....no ?

6. Ok i'll make an example. Say you have 80kg of cotton balls. You get a box and loosely fill it. That is going to be one HUGE box. Now fill a box with 80kg of lead. You could probably fit that amount into a large shoe box..or maybe slightly bigger but you get my point. The area that the box of cotton takes up is going to be way more than the lead. You see what i'm saying?

So you need to know how much space this 80kg is taking up. Then you can figure out the area in meters squared.

7. There is no conversion because meters is length.. and kilograms is mass.. smartguy

Yes we've established that. I told him he needs to know dimensions to find an area and that weight is irrelevant.

ok, now i agree with you.

10. i believe the term we are looking for is density. the more dense something is, the greater the mass, generally. at least for similar objects like metals for instance.

there can be no answer to your question unless you have some sort of base object to use for a conversion.

just my .02

11. mg is mila grammes aint it
