In a 3ft by 3ft square how many gallons of water do I need to equal a 1 inch rain?

Extra points if you know what I’m trying to solve.

Thanks in advance

I didn’t use that fine a pencil rounded off some on the acre at 44k square feet and got 6 gallons.

Apparently trying to put 54 gallons of water on something. Other than that I am as confused as hungry baby in topless bar.

Don’t answer Kingfisher someone will figure it out.

3x3 is 9 square feet using 6 gallons to the foot comes to 54 .

It’s not an acre.......it’s a 3ft by 3ft TEST PLOT. Sorry for the confusion. For what it’s worth 54 gallons won’t dent an acre here

it's just shy of 1m x 1m and 2.5cm deep, so a little under 25 liters.. Oh, that's about 6 gallons!

That's sort of how I worked it out Nesi. When you grow up with the imperial system and change to metric you have a pretty good knowledge of how basic lengths and volumes convert over, like 3' is 90cm, 1" is 2.5cm and 1 litre is 1000 cubic cm. Makes it all very easy.
