What is a square foot?
The square foot is used as a form of measurement within Canada and the United States. It can be adopted to describe the amount of floor space (for real estate) or the overall size of an exterior property. Architects will also refer to square feet when designing new buildings. One square foot is a bit smaller than an average-sized piece of A4 printer paper. One square foot can be translated to 0.092 square metres. Sometimes, the force of the modern hydraulic press is measured in pounds per square inch or square foot.
What is a square rod?
A rod can also be referred to as a "pole" or a "perch". One rod is 5.02 meters long. One square rod is therefore approximately the size of 25 square meters. Its history can be traced as far back as the Roman times when rods or cordage were used to standardise land surveys. As the term hints, a "rod" originally referred to a metal bar used to divide land during the 13th and 14th centuries in England. The rod was also useful due to the fact that it could be converted into whole numbers when measuring an acre. One acre is equal to 160 square rods. In modern times, the rod is still used to price sections of pipe as well as to determine the size of some gardens.
