By contrast, square meters, which are used for measurements of area, have a two-dimensional property. Area is found by multiplying two linear measurements together.

Cubic meters describe three-dimensional spaces and are found by multiplying three linear measurements together. It is not possible to convert square meters or cubic meters to linear meters, because these different measurement units describe different types of measurement.
