no...bc there is no depth with in an acre, only area, there is no volume, onceyou had the rain, an inch everyhwere, you now have depth

1 acre = 43560 ft^2.

1.64 inches = 1.64/12 = feet.

1728 cubic inches = 1 cubic foot

231 cubic inches = 1 gallon

3.78 liters = 1 gallon

146.8 acres x (43560 ft^2/acre) x (1.64/12) x (1,728 in^3/ft^3) x (1 gallon/231 ft^3) x (3.78 liters/gallon) = ??

Check my thinking. Check my work.
