One mile = 5280 feet, so one square mile = 27,878,400 square feet.
One acre= 43,560 square feet To find out how many square miles one acre equals, divide 43,560 by 27,878,400. The answer is 1 acre = .0015625 square miles.
Another way to do the problem is this:
One square mile = 640 acres, so one acre = 1/640 of a square mile. Divide 1 by 640 and you get 1 acre = .0015625 square miles (the same answer as above).

Miles is basically a unit of length. It is useful when it comes to measuring distances. On the other hand, An acre is a unit of area. Both these units are used in different systems around the world. Thus, it is difficult to convert between these two units.

However, the conversion can focus on square miles in an acre. Here is your conversion:

1 Acre = 4840 square yards
1 Acre = 43,560 Square feet
1 Acre =  4046.8564224 m2

Acres and miles are both units of measure that measure two entirely different things. Miles are units that are used to measure length where as acre measures area. Area can however be expressed in terms of square miles and vice versa. If a square area of one mile by one mile is drawn it will contain approximately six hundred and forty acres. Similarly a Acre of land will contain around 0.0015624999998455591 square miles. Both acres and miles are not exact units of measure and currently kilometres and hectares which are metric units are more often used in their stead. Habit and custom however continue to see the use of these units in practice. In other variable terms an acre is equal to four thousand eight hundred and forty square yards or forty three thousand five hundred and sixty square feet.
