Best Answer

An acre is a unit of area. It can have many different dimensions and can be in any shape, including regular and irregular polygons. The square footage for 1 acre is 43560 square feet.

About 15% of an acre.

There's no definite shape or size that an acre has to be. There are an infinite number of different shapes and sizes that all have areas of one acre. If it's an "acre", that only tells you how much ground it covers, but the outline of that area can have any shape. If the acre is 1 mile long, then it's 8ft 3in wide. If it's 4,840ft long, then it's 9ft wide. If it's 360ft long, then it's 121ft wide. If it's 242ft long, then it's 180ft wide. If you have a square block of land that's 1 mile long on each side, you can carve up that land into 640 acres.

Answer: 9,600 ft² = 0.220385 acres (about 22%)

An acre is any area that measures 4840 squareyards which is approximately 4046.86 square meters.So a rectangle 1 meter wide and about 4046.86 meters long is one acre;a rectangle 2 meters wide and about 2023.43 meters long is also one acre;a rectangle 10 meters wide and about 404.69 meters long is also one acre.An acre of 4840 sq yds is also calculable as a rectangle 22yds wide by 220yds long, which would be one chain wide and one furlong long - it is most likely that this was the rectangle that was originally used to define the acre.In meters one chain by one furlong would be 20.1168 meters wide by 201.168 meters long.(1 inch is defined to be exactly 2.54cm.)

A rectangular lot that's 150-ft wide has to be 290.4-ftlongin order to enclose exactly 1 acre.

1 acre is equal to 43,560 square feet or 4840 square yards. The length and width can have any value.

Answer: 9,600 ft² = 0.220385 acres (about 22%)

A parcel of land that is 1 foot wide by 43,560 feet long equals one acre. A parcel of land that measures 200 feet by 363 feet is also equal to one acre. If the parcel of land were square and measured 208.71 feet per side, its area would be equal to one acre, as well.

An acre is any area that measures 4840 squareyards which is approximately 4046.86 square meters.So a rectangle 1 meter wide and about 4046.86 meters long is one acre;a rectangle 2 meters wide and about 2023.43 meters long is also one acre;a rectangle 10 meters wide and about 404.69 meters long is also one acre.An acre of 4840 sq yds is also calculable as a rectangle 22yds wide by 220yds long, which would be one chain wide and one furlong long - it is most likely that this was the rectangle that was originally used to define the acre.In meters one chain by one furlong would be 20.1168 meters wide by 201.168 meters long.(1 inch is defined to be exactly 2.54cm.)

As an acre is a measure of area, it can be any shape, but if it is a rectangle its width and length can be any size as long as width x length = 4840yds2 = 43560 ft2, eg 1/2 ft wide by 87120 ft long, 1 ft wide by 43560 ft long, 2 ft wide by 21780 ft long, etc. An Acre was originally the amount of land an ox could plough in one day and was 1 chain wide by 10 chains long, or 22yds x 220yds or 66ft x 660ft.

One acre equals 43,560 square feet. 100' X 100' equals 10,000 square feet and is approximately .229 of an acre.
