A chain is 66 us survey feet 10 acres is 10 chains x 10 chains or 435600 square feet so an acre is 43560 square feet. Look it up in the Public Land Survey System and Beaureau of Land Management Manual.

A acre in feet equals 208.71032557111303591192697393256 in equal measurements on all four sides this equals 43560 sq ft in a acre. in determining the area of any sq or rectangle you just multiply the length by the width.

43,560 ..it's 209 feet on each side if the parcel is square. Area of any rectangle equals length time height
