What is the length and width of a square acre?


Answer by  Dogless (159)

There are 640 acres per square mile. 5280 feet per mile, squared, divided by 640 equals 43,560 square feet per acre. The square root of 43,560 is 208. 71 plus a hair. So an acre, if it's perfectly square, is 208 feet, 8. 5 inches (plus a hair) in length and width.

A square acre is 43,560 square feet, which means each side is 208. 7 feet. Of course, since its a "square acre", all sides would have to be 208. 7 feet. The term "acre" came from the amount of field one man could plow with one ox in a day.
