An acre is 43,560 square feet, so a half acre is 21,780 square feet. If the lot is rectangular, you multiply the length of the long side (in feet) times the length of the short side (in feet). For instance if the lot is 200 feet x 110 feet, the area is 22,000 square feet, just a little over a half acre. If the lot is not rectangular, then you need to have a good knowledge of geometry to calculate the area.
There are 640 acres in a section.
A section is one mile by one mile
A mile is 5,280 feet
A square mile contains 5.280 X 5,520 = 27,878400 sq ft.
divide by 640 = 43,560 square feet per acre
multiply by 4 acres = 174,240 sq ft
divide by width 650ft = 268.06 feet
There are 4840 square yards in an acre and 9 square feet in a square yard (4840 x 9 = 43,560).
An acre is an old timers measurement used in agriculture...
it was 4 poles wide and 40 poles long. A pole is equivalent to sixteen and a half feet. So back then, an acre was a piece of farming land 660 feet long (220 yards or one eighth of a mile) and 66 feet wide (22 yards or one eightieth of a mile).
Acre is a measure of area, which would be square feet.
Feet are a measure of distance.
The best you could do is something like this:
An acre is 43, 560 square feet.
Draw/imagine a square or a rectangle that would cover that much area.
If it is a square, it would be (approximately) 208.7 feet on each side.
Its perimeter (the distance around it if you walk an imaginary fence around you acre-sized plot) would be 834.8 feet.
Trying to to figure out an acre of 'Circle' - hmmmmm???
Radius = 1/2 of Diameter
sorry, just can't wrap my head around this to come up with the correct equation.
maybe we can get lucky with some other brainiac taking what I did provide and come up with a solution for you?
Square - It would be 208.7 feet across if you walk across it, and the same if you walk the other way across it.
A SECTION is one mile square.
Each section has 640 acres.
1 mile is 5,280 feet, so a section contains 27,878,400 square feet.
Divide that by 640 acres, and
1 acre contains 43,560 square feet.
Your plot of 9,329 sq feet contains .214 acres, or just over 1/5 of an acre.
