The formula for area and volume are:

Area = Length * Width
Volume = Length * Width * Height
therefore
Volume = Area * Height

You know the Area is 40 acres, and the height is 1 inch, you just need to convert them to the same basic unit, such as inches.  On the area conversion page we find that:
40 acre = 250,905,600 square inch

So then we can calculate:
250,905,600 square inches * 1 inch = 250,905,600 cubic inches

Now we go to the volume conversion page to convert that to gallons.

250,905,600 cubic inch = 1,086,171.4285714 gallon [US, liquid]
