A metre is a measurement of length. An acre is a measurement of area.

A foot is a linear measurement. An acre is a measurement of area. Your question cannot be answered. Ignorance is bliss, eh?

An acre has dimensions of L2. So an acre square is a hyper area in four-dimensional space.

There is no equivalence. A foot is a measure of length or distance in 1-dimensional space while an acre is a measure of area in 2-dimensional space. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid without some addition information. Do you mean How many square feet in 2 acres if so the answer is 87120sq.ft.

None, since there can be no conversion.A linear (or lineal) foot is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space. An acre is a measure of area in 2-dimensional space. There is no basis for assuming that the acre is a square shape rather than rectangular, circular or even a totally irregular squiggly shape. A [lineal] foot and an acre are measures of different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at conversion from one to the other is fundamentally flawed.

An acre is a two dimensional measurement for land area, whereas a cubic yard is a three dimensional unit. There are 4840 square yards per acre, so in an acre plot with 1 yard depth, there would be 4840 cubic yards.

Acre is a unit of area (2-dimensional), a linear mile is 1-dimensional. You can not compare the two.

volume is a measurement of capacity, 3 dimensional. depth is a measurement of length, 2 dimensional.

I think it is reasonable to assume you mean acres however this question can not be answered because it doesn't make sense. You can not compare an acre with a kilometre because they are not measurements of the same thing. A kilometre is a one dimensional measurement, so for example we can measure a line and say it is 1km long. An acre, however, is a two dimensional measurement and can not be used to measure something, such as a line, which is only one dimensional. You can not equate one with the other. Instead you can compare an acre with square kilometres as this too is a two dimensional measurement. An acre is about equal to about 0.004 square kilometres (accurate to 3 decimal places only) and you could fit about 247 acres in a square kilometre.

A metre is a measurement of length. An acre is a measurement of area.

None, since there can be no conversion.A linear (or lineal) foot is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space. 5 acre by 2 acre is a measure of hyper-volume in 4-dimensional space. Apart from the fact that we cannot perceive 4-dimensional space, the two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at conversion from one to the other is fundamentally flawed.

An acre is a measurement used in parceling land. It is a customary and imperial measurement. One acre is equal to 43,560 square feet.

not a real unit of measurement

the measurement of an acre is 32.11 32.11 what? A number without units is meaningless.

An acre is not a linear measurement it is an area.

Multiply the acre by 43,560 and you will obtain square feet (ft^2). This is an area measurement not a length one.

The acre.
