How Many Feet in an Acre

There are 43,560 square feet in an acre.

1 acre = 43,560 square feet
1 acre suburbs = 36000 square foot
1 acre survey = 43560.174421849

An acre is a unit of area. 640 acres equal a square mile. Hence, it is 1/640 of a square mile. Since a square mile contains 27,878,400 square feet, an acre is 27,878,400 divided by 640, which is 43,560 square feet.

Remember: an acre can be converted to SQUARE feet, not plain (linear) feet. Square feet and feet are not the same units. A foot is unit of distance. A square foot is a unit of area.

Originally, the size of an acre was approximately the amount of land an ox could plow in a day.  Now, I don’t know about you, but that approximation means virtually nothing to me.  Today, the easiest visualization might be the sideline to sideline area of 90.75 yards of a standard american football field.

Lot sizes are commonly measured in acres or a fraction thereof.  A typical suburban residential lot would measure 0.15 – 0.50 acres.  As you move to more rural areas 5, 10, 20, 40, and 80 acre parcels are very common.
