Because an acre is a measure of area, not length, it is defined in square feet. An acre can be of any shape so long as its area is exactly 43,560 square feet.The most standard… shape for an acre is one furlong by one chain, or 660 feet by 66 feet. To find the linear measurements of other rectangular acres, just divide 43,560 by the number of feet you want on one side. A square-shaped acre would then be about 208.7 by 208.7 feet (because 208.7 x 208.7 = ~43,560). An acre 100 feet wide would be 435.6 feet long (100 x 435.6 = 43,560) and an acre 1 foot wide would be 43,560 feet long. (MORE)

An acre was originally defined as the size of a plot of land that can be tilled by one man behind one ox in one day, and measures 66 feet by 660 feet, for a total of 43,560 sq…uare feet.[1] In modern times, an "acre" is considered a square building lot of size 200 x 200 feet, however, this is really 8% shy of an acre. A real acre square lot would measure 208' 81/2" square. (MORE)

A unit of area exactly equal to 4840 square yards or 43560 squarefeet. 4840 seems like a strange number, but it makes sense in theimperial measurement system. To measure leng…ths in the imperialsystem, 22 yards makes a chain, otherwise known as 'the length of acricket pitch'. Ten chains makes a furlong (as seen in horseracing), and 8 furlongs make a mile. An acre is an area one chainby one furlong (22 x 220 yards). This is a convenient measure ofarea if you are planning crops on a small farm! (I find it easierto visualize an area 2 cricket pitches by 5 cricket pitches). Converting into metric doesn't give an exact number, but an acre isapproximately 4046.86 square metres. Football pitches are not a standard size,but a typical football pitch would be about 1 acre, perhaps alittle more. WHAT KIND OF FOOTBALL PITCH?! The metric equivalent isthe hectare, which is exactly 10,000 square metres - so one hectareis about 2.5 acres. Acre is a measurement of area, so it does not necessarily have agiven length or shape. If it was square shaped an acre would be208.71 feet long on each side. From: 1 acre = 43,560 square feet. Take the square root of 43,560to get 208.71. It originally referred to the area that could be ploughed by a teamof oxen in a day. (MORE)

A standard acre is a measure of land area. Its around 43,560 square feet, or 4047 square metres. If it was a sqaure, the sides of the square would be around 64 metres.

It depends An acre is a unit of area, but its actual shape may vary. It doesn't have to be shaped like a square. The more oblong the shape, the greater the perimeter be…comes. If it is a perfect square, however, then its perimeter in feet will be four times the square root of its area in square feet. An acre is equal to 43,560 square feet. The square root of that is 208.71, so the perimeter is 834.84 feet if the acre is square. The minimum value of perimeter for a given area will always occur with a circular shape. Area = Pi x d2/4, perimeter = Pi x d, so for 1 acre perimeter comes to 739.9 ft. (MORE)

An acre of land is 43,560 square feet. It can be an almost any shape so the longest it could be is 43,560 feet, but the lot would only be a foot wide.

in meters 1 acre is about 4046.85 meters it took me a while to get how many meters it was ill get it in feet to and in miles so if any one has it in feet improve this answer p…lease -Hi, it's an area that is 660 feet by 66 feet (1/8 mi. by 1/80 mile) for 43,560 feet or 1/640 of a square mile.

You must measure the shape of the ground in question (using feet or yards) and obtain from that the amount of square feet or square yards. Measured area in sq.ft. / 43560 = ac…res. Measured area in sq.yd. / 4840 = acres. (MORE)

Oddly enough, an acre was not defined as a square, but as a rectangle -- for example a long, thin parcel of farmland that would be plowed in long furrows. It is 1/640th of a… square mile, or 4840 square yards, or 43560 square feet. The simplest designation uses the obsolete units chain (66 feet) and furlong (660 feet or 10 chains or 1/8 mile). Thus an acre is 1 chain by 1 furlong, or 10 square chains, and may have been established as about a day's plowing for an ox. The 1/640th of a mile can be seen in that there are 80 chains to a mile and 8 furlongs to a mile, a unit still seen in various horse race distances today. The SI unit comparable to the acre is a hectare (10000 m2), which is about 2.47 acres. (MORE)
