Definition of Acre

An acre is a unit of area commonly used in the United States and the United Kingdom. It is equivalent to 1/640th of a square mile, about 4046.86 square meters, or 43,560 square feet. Historically, an acre was understood as a selion of land sized at forty perches (660 feet) long and four perches (66 feet) wide.

Definition of Section

A section is a specific area of land used in U.S. public land surveying. A section is an area nominally one square mile, containing 640 acres, with 36 sections making up one survey township on a rectangular grid. The concept of sections was created to facilitate the sale of land in the frontier.
