# How many people can stand on one acre of land?

An acre is 4840 square yards, or 43,560 square feet. If you take average adults (50-50 male-female), you're looking at a cross-sectional area of about 1.5 to 2.0 square feet at chest or hip level. Dividing, you would get quotients of 29,040 and 21,780. I think it would be safe to say between 20,000 and 30,000 average adults could stand on one acre of land. Or pick the average of those two numbers, about 25,000.
Depends on if they need their "space".
I don't think there is a set answer depends on these two factors: the contour of the land, how big or little the people are such as big fat old men or a small teenage boy... any other factor you can think of probably change the number too.
I don't believe there has ever been a person so big or fat that they couldn't fit on an acre. So my answer would be all of them. However, on further reflection, there are some people that can't stand at all. So, not those people. The correct answer is, all of the people that can stand can do so on one acre of land.
I can!!
Rather more than TitoBob (answerer 3) thinks, if they stand just touching each other and promise to behave themselves.

How big is a person? I'll say they measure 38 inches around the hips or bust. They're not circular, but our answer will come out the same if we just assume that they are.

So how much space does each 38-inch circle need, when it's packed touching other circles the same size? We replace it with its just-covering hexagon, which will account for all the area plus the gaps between people, and it turns out to have sides of 0.582 feet and an area of 0.880 square feet.

Given that 1 acre = 4840 square yards, 1 square yard = 9 square feet, and 1 person = 0.880 square feet, it comes to 49,500 people per acre. You can put this up or down by 2,600 if you think that 36 inches, or 40 inches, is a more reasonable average girth than my 38 inches.
10. I am not wrong. 20 can, too. So can 50.
Also, 323. Shall I keep going?
It depends on the type of land.....like hilly or bumpy ect. and the space the person needs. I would estimate. It comes up to 23,000 to 25,000 people.
