As we all know, we cannot use a single unit for calculation of one particular quantity, for example, we cannot use meter unit for calculation of the distance between two cites and finding the length of a needle, here we have to use a different unit for calculation of same physical quantity. Hence in this section, we will tell you what is a hectare and what is an acre and what is the difference between the two and finally, we will tell you how to convert these units into one another.

Hectare is taken into consideration when we talk about the area in terms of square kilometers

**Acre**

When we talk about Acre, it is actually the unit of area which is equal to 1/640th of square miles. it means that if we have an area section which is equal to 1 square mile, then is we divide the whole into 640 equal parts then the single part will be equal to 1 Acre
