How big is one acre in square meters?

by Chris Lang on August 4, 2007

So here I was, reading this ad about a beautiful house on a huge block of land. To be more specific, it was sitting on 1 acre allotment and I was thinking – how really big is it, how many square meters is one acre?

It’s a fact that people from different countries use different measurement units, a person from Europe is used to square meters and kilometers, while someone from US is used to square feet, yards and miles and in Australia they use both square meters and acres. And most of us know that there are feet, meters, acres and hectares but we never know how to do the conversions between those.

So for all of those wondering, here goes:

1 acre = 43,560 square feet = 4047 sq meters = 0.4047 hectares.

1 square yard = 9 sq feet = 0.836 sq meters

Need more help with conversion? Let this area conversion calculator do the job.

If you can think of any other useful conversions, comment on this post and I will have them added. After all, if you’d like to know – I bet someone else has the same question.
