[R] intersecting polygons and conversion from decimal degree to km

1. How can I compute the intersecting area between 2 polygons ?
2. I have polygons with coordinates in decimal degrees (i.e. 13 deg 30
min = 13.5 decimal degrees). I want to compute their area and get the
results in square meters or square kiometers. Can anyone give me a
conversion coefficient or a pointer where I can find this information
(sorry for this off topic question) ?
Thanks in advance,
