### What is Square Meter and Square Foot?

A **square meter** is a way to measure a space that is 1 meter long and 1 meter wide. If you picture a square on the ground, thatâ€™s how big one square meter would be.

On the other hand, a **square foot** is a smaller area. It’s 1 foot long and 1 foot wide.

### Converting Square Meters to Square Feet

To change **square meters** into **square feet**, you can use the conversion that 1 square meter is equal to about 10.764 square feet.

So to convert 0.02 square meters into square feet, we can use the formula:

$$

\text{Area in square feet} = \text{Area in square meters} \times 10.764

$$

Now, letâ€™s do the math together:

$$

0.02 \, \text{square meters} \times 10.764 \, \text{(square feet/square meter)} \approx 0.21528 \, \text{square feet}

$$

So, **0.02 square meters is approximately 0.215 square feet.**

### Things That Match This Area

To help visualize this size, here are **7 objects** that are **exactly equal** to **0.02 square meters** or about **0.215 square feet**:

- A small piece of paper (around the size of a notepad)
- The top of a dinner plate
- A small flower pot (for a seedling)
- A coaster that you would put your drink on
- A small cutting board (for chopping herbs)
- A square tile that is about 5 inches by 5 inches
