I want to be sure ... when you say "a 1.5 mile square", you mean a square in which each of the 4 sides is 1.5 miles long. If that's the intent, then: Area of your square = (1.5 x 1.5) = 2.25 square miles. 1 square mile = 640 acres. 2.25 square miles = (2.25 x 640) = 1,440 acres. =============================================== If "a 1.5 mile square" means an area of 1.5 square miles, then 1.5 square miles = (1.5 x 640) = 960 acres.

First of all, there is no such thing as "square acres". The unit of area here is "acres". Next, the area doesn't tell you the shape or the dimensions. There are an infinite number of different shapes and different rectangles with different dimensions that all have the same area inside. -- If your 18,000 acres is inside a circle, then the diameter of the circle is 31,596 feet, or about 5.984 miles. -- If your 18,000 acres is inside a square, then each side of the square is 28,001 feet long, or about 5.303 miles. -- If your 18,000 acres is inside a rectangle, there are an infinite number of sets of length and width that it could have. For example: -- It could be 3.125 miles wide and 9 miles long. -- It could be 1 mile wide and 28.125 miles long. -- It could be 660 feet wide and 225 miles long.

1.5 million acres: -- if it's a circle, then the diameter is 54.63 miles -- if it's a square, then each side is 48.41 miles -- if it's an equilateral triangle, then each side is 73.57 miles -- if it's a rectangle 100 miles long, then the strip is 23.44 miles wide -- 65,340,000,000 square feet -- 7,260,000,000 square yards -- 2,343.75 square miles

1,000 square miles: -- a square 31.6 miles on every side -- a circle 35.7 miles in diameter -- an equilateral triangle 48.1 miles on every side -- a rectangle 100 miles long and 10 miles wide -- 640,000 acres -- 3,097,600,000 square yards -- 27,878,400,000 square feet

617,886 acres is 965.45 square miles or about 31.07 miles per side for a square-shaped lot of this size.

1 acre = 43,560 square feet (4,840 square yards) 2,000 acres = 87,120,000 square feet (9,680,000 square yards) 640 acres = 1 square mile 2,000 acres = 3.125 square miles . . . If the entire 2,000 acres were in a square shape, then each side of the square would be 1.768 miles long.

1 acres is 10,000 square meters. 40 acres of the 400,000 square meters. 1 hectare is equal to 2.471054 acres. 98.84216 acres is equal to 40 acres. 0.154440868 square miles is equal to 40 acres.

Illogical. Miles is a distance and Acres is an area. That's not illogical. He could have meant square miles. 250 acres is 0.39 square miles, or about 10,872,000 square feet. If it was a square, it would be about 3,297 feet long and wide. That's also .6 miles by .6 miles, if the land is square and flat.

Central Park is 843 acres. It is approximately half a mile wide, and two and a half miles long.

That depends on how fast you walk. The distance around 236 acres (if it is square-shaped) is 2.43 miles.

A mile is a distance measurement. An acre is a measurement of area enclosed. Converting acres to miles results in square miles. One square mile ( 1 mile long by 1 mile wide ), equals 640 acres.
