while using field calculator to calculate acres from ft (state plane 3435 (ft) > acres). I am not getting expected results. I've tried this on QGIS 3.4.4, and 2.18.28.
My formula is:
$area * 0.0000229568
I double checked in postgis. This is returning expected numbers:
st_area(geom) * 0.0000229568

They are two totally different calculations - the PostGIS one is the equivalent of QGIS'
The other is an ellipsoidal area, calculated using the settings from your project properties.
