>"(un pie-acre de agua cubre un área de un acre a una profundidad de un pie, y equivale a 325 mil 851 galones)."
>Acre-Pie: Medida del volumen de un cuerpo de agua grande, como un lago. Se calcula multiplicando el área superficial de un acre (43,560 pies cuadrados) por un pie de profundidad. Si un pie cúbico = 7.48 galones, podemos concluir que un acre-pie = 325,851 galones US
