acre inch/week to gallons per acre per day

Postby anotherjeff » Fri Jun 30, 2006 5:34 am

Hi, I've been unsuccesful in my attempts with trying to do the following conversion: acre inch/week to gallons per acre per day

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

1 acre-in/week x 43560 ft^2/acre x 1ft/12 in x 1week/7 days = 518.57 ft^3/day

518.57 ft^3/day x 1728 in^3/ft^3 x 1 gallon/231 in^3 = 3879.18 gallons per day (27154 gallons per week)

Where did the acres go in the formula

Sorry if this is dumb.

1. What happened to the acres in the gallons per acres per day?

2. Maybe I'll understand better if a number was tossed in there. What if it was 201 acres at 1 acre inch per week converted to gallons per acre per day.

A previous answer was 3879 gallons per acre per day but I'm not sure if that's correct.

Once again, thank you so much.

An acre-inch is a volume of water (as is gallons) whether applied to 1 acre, 1" deep, or many acres, shallow.

I don't understand if you are applying 1 acre-inch to the entire 201 acres or to each acre. I assume to each acre as 1" of water per week everywhere seems about right, although I know more about watering my grass than farming. So I think you are using 201 acre-inches/week. Just multiply.
