You can find the area of a space in square miles using an area calculator or acreage calculator.

## How Much Is a Square Mile?

One square mile is equal to the area of a square with sides that are each 1 mile long. One square mile is roughly equal to 2.59 square kilometers or 640 acres.

## How to Convert Square Miles

To convert square miles to another unit of area, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor.
A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.^{[1]}

You can find the conversion factors for square miles in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the area measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

square miles × conversion factor = result
