1. Introduction: Acre to Sq Ft

An acre is a traditional measurement unit of land area, depending on the imperial or US customary measurement system.

Acre is used for land measurement by farmers and in real estate for land purchase and sale of residential and commercial plots.

An acre is a unit of land measurement that equals an area of 1 chain by one furlong, or 66 feet by 660 feet. This equals 10 square chains, 1/640 of a square mile, or 43560 square feet.

An acre is 4047 square meters or 4840 square yards in the metric system, about 40% of a hectare.

1 acre = 1 chain × 1 furlong,

As we know, 1 furlong equals ten chains, so we have

1 acre = 1 chain × 10 chains,

As we know, one chain is equal to 22 yards, so we have

1 acre = 22 yards × 22 yards,

1 acre = 4840 sq. yards,

As we know, one square yard is equal to 9 square feet, so we have,

1 acre = 9× 4840 sq. ft,

Hence, 1 acre = 43560 sq. ft.

2. What is an Acre?

4. Converting Between Acres and Square Feet

Converting between acres and square feet is a simple process that follows a specific formula. Here it is:

Number of square feet = Number of acres * 43,560

Number of square feet = 5 acres * 43,560 = 217,800 square feet

5. Converting Between Square Feet and Acres

If you want to convert an area from square feet to acres, use the following formula:

Number of acres = 100,000 square feet / 43,560 = 2.296 acres (approximately)
