1 Acre = is about 208 3/4 feet square
1 Acre Square = 5645.376 square varasPeople don't realize that one acre is the size of a football field
According to my calculations if an American football field is 160 feet wide
(53.3-repeating Yards), you would have an acre when you went from one goal
line to just inside the 10 yard line at the other end (90.75 yards).
Sportscasters might say, "First down and goal to go, just inside the ten
yard line (or at the nine yard line)." An acre as pointed out in the post above is 4840 square yards (a square yard
is similar in size to a square meter but slightly smaller). Multiplying 53.3
repeating by 90.75 yards gives approximately 4840 square yards. |
