You would only be able to calculate if the area was a perfect square. If the length and width were different, then you would need to know at least one of the dimensions.

1/3 acre = 14520 square feet

If a perfect square:
120.5 feet * 120.5 feet = 14520 square feet

If its rectangle in shape you need to know at least one dimension, the length or width.

1/3 acre or 1.3 acre?

1/3 acre is 14520 ft². Area of a rectangle is length x width, so if one dimensuion is 150 ft, other is 97 ft (rounded). Remember you have two of each side. Perimeter is 494 ft.
