# Feet perimeter of an acre

The area doesn't tell you the perimeter. There are an infinite number of different

shapes with different perimeters that all have the same 1-acre area.

The smallest possible perimeter for 1 acre is a circle. The perimeter (circumference)

is 739.9 feet, and the diameter is 235.5 feet.

The smallest possible perimeter for a 1-acre rectangle is 834.8 feet.

That's if it's a square, with sides = 208.7 feet.

The perimeter for a 1-acre rectangle can be anything more than that. It only

depends on how long and skinny the rectangle is. Here are a few examples.

All of the rectangles on this list enclose 1 acre:

220' x 198', perimeter = 836'

330' x 132', perimeter = 924'

440' x 99', perimeter = 1,078'

605' x 72', perimeter = 1,354'

1,210' x 36', perimeter = 2,492'

2,420' x 18', perimeter = 4,876' Study guides
