## How many Square Feet in a Square Meter?

There are approximately **0.09290304 square feet in a square meter**, since a foot is defined as 0.3048 meters, thus a meter is 1/0.3048 feet and a square meter is 1/0.3048 squared. The modern definition of the foot is established in 1959 by an international treaty. According to which the symbol for square meter is "m^{2}", sometimes written as "sq m" and the symbol for square feet is "ft^{2}", often written as "sq ft".

## Difference between Feet and Meters

Both feet and meters are used to measure medium distances and the dimensions of larger objects. Thus, both are units of length, but of somewhat different magnitude. The foot is a part of the Imperial system of units, while the meter is the base unit of the metric system of units.

Historically, the foot varied in length depending on which time period and location you are interested in. It is currently officially used only in the US, UK, and a couple of other countries and its definition is fixed to that of the meter.

The meter is a modern metric, defined as the distance light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 seconds. It was defined on the basis of a standard meter, which was a piece of metal alloy kept for reference, but was later redefined in this more precise manner. Due to its wide adoption, utility and ease of use, the meter is the preferred unit in engineering, sciences, and for most countries; everyday life.
