Circumference of the semi-circle is 1/2 pi d or 600 pi or 1885.0 ft. The Area of the semicircle is 1/2 pi r^2 or 1/2 pi (600)^2 or 565486.7 square feet. But one acre is 43,560 sq ft. so 565486.7 sq ft = 13.0 acres

circumference of the circle is\[C=2\pi r\]since it's a semi circle, the formula will be\[C=\pi r\] given diameter measure is 1200 feet. therefor r=600 substitute to the formula; \[C=\pi r\]\[C=\pi 600\]therefor; it is approximately 1884.96 feet
