Acre is a measure of volume used in many countries. Meaning “open field”, it is commonly used to measure tracts of land and was first defined back in the middle age as a measure to the amount of land a yoke of oxen could plow in one day.

An acre can be measured in any shape as long as the total land area amounts to 43,560 square feet. To better visualize, imagine something like a football field without both end zones.
