## Square Meter and Cubic Meter

### Square Meter

A square meter (m²) is a metric unit of area. It is defined as the area of a square with sides 1 meter long. The square meter is used in many different contexts, such as measuring the size of a piece of land, calculating the floor area of a room, or calculating the area of a flat figure in geometry.

### Cubic Meter

A cubic meter (m³) is a metric unit of volume. It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides 1 meter long. The cubic meter is commonly used for measuring large volumes, such as the contents of a room or the capacity of a large reservoir.

### The Difference and Relationship Between m² and m³

Although square meters and cubic meters are both used to measure the size of spaces, they measure different things. A square meter measures area, which is two-dimensional and has only length and width. A cubic meter measures volume, which is three-dimensional and has length, width, and height.

The relationship between square meters and cubic meters is that you can calculate the volume of a space if you know the area and the height. The volume in cubic meters is equal to the area in square meters multiplied by the height in meters.

For example, suppose you have a room that is 10 square meters in size and 3 meters high. The volume of that room in cubic meters is 10 m² * 3 m = 30 m³.
