GSM stands for Grammes per Square Metre - and is how the quality of paper is measured. Normal office paper is either 60 or 80 grammes - good quality paper would be 100 to 120 grammes. Actually, it is how the THICKNESS of paper is measured, in a roundabout way. The more paper weighs, the thicker it is.

The weight of the paper in gram per square meter. Note that the weight in pounds is not the weight per square foot, but the weight of 500 of some arbitrary size sheet (for cop…y paper it is for a 17x22" sheet - for book paper it is 25x38". ). 20# copy paper or 50# book paper is about 75 gsm.
GSM means grams per square meter in measurement. It is the measure of the weight and type of the paper. The higher the GSM paper you have, the better quality the paper is.
The gsm on paper means grams per square meter i.e if you have a square metre of the paper it would weigh whatever the grammage stated. The general rule is the higher the numbe…r the thicker the paper / card.
Paper comes in many different sizes, so there is no set conversion. However, GSM stands for grams / square meter, so if the GSM and density of the paper is known, conversi…on becomes easier. The formula for the thickness then becomes: Thickness = GSM/density.
GSM in this context stands for Grams per Square Meter for paper or cardboard. It roughly corresponds to microns (millionths of a meter or thousandths of a millimeter) in… thickness.
You cannot convert GSM to cm since the first is a measure of planar density, with dimension [ML -2 ], whereas a centimetre is a linear measure with dimension [L]. . However, …you can turn GSM into grams per square centimetre if you divide by 10000.
GSM means Global System for Mobile Communications. This is the most commonly used technology by the carriers or network providers worldwide. However in paper production, it re…fers to Grams per Square Meter. Normallly, the higher the GSM, the thick the sheet of paper.

Take a paper of standard size. Measure its mass in gram using an electronic balance. Find its dimensions (length and breadth) in meter. Find the area in meter2. Get the gsm by… dividing the mass in gram by area in meter2. Example: If the mass of a 42cmx33.5cm paper is 8.15gram then its gsm is 58 . (8.15/.42/.335 = 58) You will get more accurate results by using multiple sheets of paper. I usually use at least 10 sheets of paper, then you can either find the total area of the 10 sheets (multiply area of 1 sheet by 10), or divide the mass that you measured by 10, before doing the gsm calculation.
How to calculate gsm for cartons
GSM in relation to paper - is the weight in Grammes of one Square Metre. For example - 'regular' A4 copier paper is usually 70 GSM. Craft paper such as origami paper (for fold…ing into models) is usually much lighter at around 40 GSM, or sheets of card is normally 120 GSM
to find yield
grams per sq. meter
cut 10x10 cm paper then check the weight of paper on gram. GSM is (weight of paper (W) divide by 0.01)
GSM is a gram per square meter . tempate of 20x25cm paper size cut it and weight it in weightometer
