I need to convert acres to linear ft. I have a chain link fence around 60 acres square.. I need to know what the linear feet of the chain link fence is without measuring it off by foot.

60 acres is 60 acres x 43560 ft^2/acre = 2613600 ft^2.

IF the shape is exactly square, one side is just the square root of this, 1617 feet, and the total perimeter is 4 times that, 6468 feet.
