Dear convert-me.com 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 convert-me.com FaceBook page

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

1 square mile is 640 acres, and if square has a perimeter of 4 miles.

40 acres is 1/16 of that. If square in shape, it is 1/4 mile on each side, and has a perimeter of 1 mile, or 5280 feet.

lot of land

I am looking to purchase land and put a home on it. What is the appropriate size of land to put an average home, say 2,000 sq. ft. How do you convert land that is 25,000 sq. ft. into land measurements?

An Acre is equal to 43,560 square feet (Sq. Ft.) of area.

There are exactly 640 Acres in one square mile...
Hope this helps :D

Divide 25,000 (sq feet) by 43,560 (which is one acre) and you get .57 acre. So you have a little over 1/2 acre.
