Its simple but you need the width of the material you are going to be working with.

LINEAR METRES (LM) = AREA OF SPACE / WIDTH OF MATERIAL REQUIRED(W)

For example:

I have a room 6 x 5 metres so the Area = 30 m2

I want to lay timber floorboard planks and their WIDTH per floorboard plank is 0.25 metres.

LM=A/W = 30/0.25 = 120

Therefore I will need 120 linear metres of the 0.25mtr wide planks.

Meters and linear meters are the same measurement - the word linear is used to distinguish between that and a square meter - which is a unit of area.

In North American English - which is the version of the English language used as standard here on Answers.com - meter is the spelling for the SI unit for length, and meter is also the spelling for a measuring device.

However in British English, metre is the spelling for the SI unit for length, whereas meter is the spelling for a measuring device. The units' names are in fact FRENCH words, so "Metre" is correct French.

For example, "An energy meter is located three metres from ground level."

The question cannot be answered for two reasons:

1. Different materials have different densities and, therefore, the same quantity of two materials will have different masses. Weight is a measure of the force of gravity acting on a mass.
2. A linear metre is a measure of length while weight is a measure of force. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at conversion from one to the other is fundamentally flawed.

A metre and a linear metre are the same unit of measurement - the word "linear" is used merely to distinguish it from a square or cubic metre, of two or three dimensions.

Normally you would measure it, rather than calculate it. It is simply a length equivalent to 100 centimetres.

1 metre = 1 linear metre.
