An acre is a unit of area, but its actual shape may vary. It doesn't have to be shaped like a square. The more oblong the shape, the greater the perimeter becomes. If it is a perfect square, however, then its perimeter in feet will be four times the square root of its area in square feet. An acre is equal to 43,560 square feet. The square root of that is 208.71, so the perimeter is 834.84 feet if the acre is square. The minimum value of perimeter for a given area will always occur with a circular shape. Area = Pi x d2/4, perimeter = Pi x d, so for 1 acre perimeter comes to 739.9 ft.

A 12-acre square lot has a perimeter of 2,891.96 feet.

A 20-acre square lot has a perimeter of 3,733.52 feet.

An acre is an area itself, so a 'square acre' doesn't mean anything. The circumference or perimeter depends on the shape of the acre. The smallest value will be for a circle. For an acre which is a perfect square shape, each side equal, the perimeter is 278.3 yards or 834.9 feet

6984.8 feet approx.

The perimeter of a square is four times the square root of its area, so the perimeter of a square one-acre area is four times the square root of an acre.1 acre = 43560.17 ft2, so the square root of an acre is about208.7 ft. The perimeter of the square is therefore4 x 208.7 ft = 834.8 ft.

You don't have to figger: a square acre has a perimeter of 208.7 fett on all four sides. But you can find the square root of the 43560 square feet inside an acre to get the perimeter measuremnets.
