57.6 cu ft

672.28 cubic yards.

22,610.67 Imperial gallons.

1 acre is 6,272,640 square inches. Since you want to cover it one inch deep you need 6,272,640 cubic inches of water. There are 231 cubic inches in a gallon. So divide 6,272,640 by 231 and you get 27,154.2857 gallons! HOWEVER: If you want to save water, consider this: When water freezes, it increases in volume about 9%. So if you used ICE to cover your acre and only needed the ice to be 1 inch deep, you could use 9% less water to start with! (I'll let you do the math on that.) Ice is still water, so unless you are asked to use LIQUID water this question has 2 answers.

4840 x 1/6 = 806.67

It depends on how deep the water is over the area it covers. 1 gallon = 231 cubic inches. If the water is 1 inch deep, it can cover an area of 231 square inches. If it's 231 inches deep, it can only cover an area of 1 square inch.

1 acre = 43,560 square feet At 1/2-ft deep, that's (43,560 x 1/2) = 21,780 cubic feet 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard 21,780 cubic feet = 806 2/3 cubic yards

average is 20 cwt (hundred weight) per acre. this can also be expressed as one ton or 2000 pounds. plant 6 inches deep 10 inches apart.

How deep do you want that ?If you want it 1.6 inches deep, then it can cover 1 square foot.If you want it 10-ft deep, then it can't cover that much area.
