How much does a sheet of paper weigh?

Mon 29 Mar 2010 by mskala Tags used: ,

A standard sheet of laser-printer paper of the usual thickness, either US "letter" size or international "A4" size, weighs 4.5 grams. That means 100 sheets weighs almost exactly one pound.

One sheet is 0.16 of one ounce (28.35g); there are 6.3 sheets per ounce.

One sheet is 0.01 of one pound (454g); there are 101 sheets per pound.

One sheet is 0.0045 of one kilogram (1000g); there are 222 sheets per kilogram.
