You are mixing volume (square yard) and area (length x width). How deep do you want the dirt? One foot deep you need about 80 square yards of dirt.

I think 17 or maybe 38

2.37 cubic yards.

1 acre = 43560 sq.feet. 1 foot deep water over an acre is 43560 cubic feet, which is 325851.4 gallons in 1 foot deep. If it is 1 inch deep (1/12 foot) then it is 27154.3 gallons in 1 inch deep.

There is 98.17477042 cubic feet of dirt in a 5 foot deep hole that is 5 foot across.

35/9 cubic yards for every foot deep.

This is the worth math I've ever seen! 1 acre = 43,560 SF, take the square root of 43,560 to give you the base numbers of the acre = 208.71 feet for both the height and width of an acre to get square feet of an acre. Divide 208.71 / 3 = 69.57 yards for the height and width of the acre. Multiply 69.57 x 69.57 = 4,840 square yards in an acre. A cubic yard is simply 4,840 square yards dug down 3 feet or one yard. So one acre has 4,840 cubic yards of dirt if you only dig down 3 feet. If you dig down 6 feet that doubles and so on. One acre would have 48,400 cubic yards of dirt if you dug down 30 feet or 10 yards. Using a one cubic yard example if you removed one cubic yard of dirt from an acre you would have 4,480 cubic yards of dirt, and one cubic yard of dirt weighs approximately 1.3 tons so once cubic acre weighs 1.3 x 4,840 acres = 6,292 tons.

There are twenty-seven cubic feet in a cubic yard. So, you'd have 27,000 cubic feet in 1000 cubic yards. Assuming you leave each cubic foot intact and since there are 43,560 square feet in an acre then you'd be able to cover over half an acre. At only 6" deep you'd cover over an acre.

About 3 yards with a little left over. 2.78 yards.

a lot of dirt.

There is no dirt in the hole, but if you want to know how much dirt was removed to create the hole, then:3 acres is an amount of area (you don't have 'square acres'). You could express this volume as acre-feet, but this term is usually used when referring to flooding (an acre of land flooded with 1 foot of water, for example). 1 acre = 43560 square feet, so 3 acres = 130680 square feet.(130680 square feet)*(200 feet) = 26136000 cubic feet {26.136 million cubic feet} In the dirt industry, the standard measurement is cubic yards {often referred to as just 'yards' of dirt}. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard, so this is equivalent to 968000 cubic yards.

A 1000 acre lake that is 7 feet deep (uniformly) will have 7000 acre feet of water in it. An acre foot is an acre of water one foot deep, and the unit is used to measure reservoir water capacity. The conversion factor is that one acre foot equals about 325,851.5 gallons. The lake in question is holding 7000 times 325,851.5 gallons of water.
