Wondering how big is an acre?
It is common to hear people say that it's almost the size of a football field without both end zones. But sometimes *almost* is not enough and you need to know exactly how big is an acre.
First, you need to understand that an Acre can be measured in any type of shape - a rectangle, a triangle, even circles - as long as its total area equals to 43,560 square feet.
With that in mind… you’re in for a treat. One acre equals:
- 1 furlong by 1 chain
- 43,560 square feet
- 40046.86 square meters
- 0.00404686 square kilometers
- 1/640th of a square mile
- 0.404686 hectares
- 4840 square yards
- 60% of a Soccer field
- 75% of a Football field (91% if you don’t count both end zones)
- 1/3 of a Baseball field
- 3 lanes of an Olympic swimming pool
- 16 Tennis courts in a 4x4 formation
