1' is legally defined as 0.3048 m so
500 m x 1 ft/0.3048 m = 1640.42 ft

What you need to know is the thickness of a chart, including any folder, etc. If they vary, you need average thickness.

The use of linear feet (or meters) ignores the width and height of the file (but assumes they fit in the cabinet, and that only thickness matters. 1640.42" is 19685", so on average, each chart would have to be a little less than 1" thick (0.984" to be precise).

Going back to the 500 m, each chart has to be less than 25 mm thick, on average.

The figure may be decomposed into a rectangle 50' long and two right triangles wuith a base of 20' and hypotenuse of 150.5' The unknown height is sqrt(150.5 - 20) = 149.17'. The area is that height times 0.5*(50 + 90) = 10441.6 ft

Since a foot is legally defined as 0.3048 m,
10441.6 ft x (0.3048 m/ft) = 970 m

If you want square meters, it might be easier to measure in meters than to convert.

1 ft is defined as 0.3048 m
450 m x 1 ft/0.3048 m = 1476 ft
