Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

how many sq feet is an acre and - if an acre were a perfect square ,,what would be the distance[size] of each side...??

43560 ft^2 (640 acres per sq mile)
if square, just take square root ~208.7 feet on a side.
In metric units, 0.404686 ha

At least in the US, builders cheat on the definition, and 40000+ square feet is usually a "builder's acre"
