How to Convert Hectares to Square Centimeters

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a hectare measurement to a square centimeter measurement, multiply the area by the conversion ratio. One hectare is equal to 100,000,000 square centimeters, so use this simple formula to convert:

square centimeters = hectares × 100,000,000

The area in square centimeters is equal to the hectares multiplied by 100,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 hectares to square centimeters using the formula above.
5 ha = (5 × 100,000,000) = 500,000,000 sq cm

Hectares and square centimeters are both units used to measure area. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One hectare is equal to 10,000 square meters, or the area of a square with 100 meter sides.

The hectare is an SI accepted unit for area for use with the metric system. In the metric system, "hecto" is the prefix for 102. Hectares can be abbreviated as ha, for example 1 hectare can be written as 1 ha.

Square Centimeters

One square centimeter is equal to the area of a square with 1 centimeter long sides.

The square centimeter, or square centimetre, is a multiple of the square meter, which is the SI derived unit for area. In the metric system, "centi" is the prefix for 10-2. A square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a square cm. Square centimeters can be abbreviated as sq cm, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cm². For example, 1 square centimeter can be written as 1 sq cm or 1 cm².

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
