you can use the conversion factor

1 acre = 0.404686 hectare

or
1 hectare = 2.47105 acres

What exactly are you needing?

The general formula is hectares x 2.4711 = acres

I am confursed I found this.


There are 0.404685642 hectares in an acre. One hectare is the area that is equal to a square of 100 meter by 100 meters and is equal to 2.47105381 acres.

<< One hectare is the area that is equal to a square of 100 meter by 100 meters and is equal to 2.47105381 acres. >>

Meaning, that if you know the number of acres and you want to get hectares, you divide the number acres by 2.471.

Hectares = acres/ 4.71   (approximately)

Are you sure this is really an MS Access question?

It sounds like it would be better placed in the Math and Science Topic area for this type of discussion :-)

Yes capricorn1 you are wright.
It looks that Acres x 2.471 = Hectares
mbizup Hectare is bigger than acre, mbizup you are wrong when you said:
Meaning, that if you know the number of acres and you want to get hectares, you divide the number acres by 2.471.
It is oposite if I am not wrong.

Nope...

Your question concerns Acres to Hectares.

Try this out, and enter acres in the textbox:

This is a better conversion tool, without the popups:
http://www.onlineconversion.com/area.htm


Mathematically, your trying to work this equation:

x ha = y ac    

lets say for example that you have 20 acres and are trying to determine how many hectares you have.   Your equation becomes:

x ha = 20 ac   --- where x is the number of hectares you are trying to determine

We also know the unit conversion ha = 2.471 * ac ... which you can substitute for ha in the previous equation, making it:

x ( 2.471 *  ac) = 20 ac

Now you can solve for x (the number of hectares) by dividing both sides by the conversion factor:

x =  20 ac /  ( 2.471 *  ac)

the units (acres) cancel out, leaving you with x (the number of hectares):

x = 20/ 2.471


Make sense?  :-)




Lets say, for example that you have 20 acres and you want to know the number of hectares

cap -

Understood - but the comments and the author's direction with this question have had nothing to do with Access specifically -- it has been about the formula (math)

don't assume until you find the application that will use the formula..

could be a real estate database.

Good point - It's definitely suited for the Math topic area, but It doesn't hurt to have it in both topic areas (done)
