### What is an acre?

The **acre** is a unit of land commonly employed within North America and the Caribbean. It is equal to 4,047 square metres or 43,560 square feet. This measurement is roughly equivalent to 40 per cent of a hectare. Interestingly enough, the acre can trace its roots back to mediaeval times. It was defined as the area that could be ploughed in a single day with the help of an ox. One acre is approximately 76 per cent the size of a football field. Many suburban lots are between one-quarter and one-fifth of an acre in size. You can find out more about acres in the article, how big is an acre?

### What is a square rod?

A rod can also be referred to as a "pole" or a "perch". One rod is 5.02 meters long. One **square rod** is therefore approximately the size of 25 square meters. Its history can be traced as far back as the Roman times when rods or cordage were used to standardise land surveys. As the term hints, a "rod" originally referred to a metal bar used to divide land during the 13th and 14th centuries in England. The rod was also useful due to the fact that it could be converted into whole numbers when measuring an acre. One acre is equal to 160 square rods. In modern times, the rod is still used to price sections of pipe as well as to determine the size of some gardens.
