I would like to expand the fs below by 2 GB. How best to calculate the 2GB in order to be able to add it to the current size 61444096. lvextend uses the final size in MB you see. Would I just do ((1024 x 2)+ (61444096/1024))

I have fs that i want to expand and i've more than 12G space in my vg vg02 to do it.

Looks good.  To make your life a bit easier, the lv commands can work with offsets ( +2G ) as opposed to absolute sizes, which I believe is all fsadm can work with.  fsadm however can use unit modifiers other than M.
lvextend  -L+2G /dev/vg02/lvol1

so you can give an offset to lv command but you have to give the total new size of the fs with fssadm?
