# Estimate weight of a letter based on number of pages?

To estimate the weight of a letter based on the number of pages, first look at the type of paper in use. The "weight" of a paper in the USA is expressed in pounds. The average piece of inkjet paper is 20lb paper, which is based on the weight of one ream (500 pages) of the base size (17"x 22") which makes 4 sheets of 8 1/2" x 11", letter sized paper. To convert to find the weight per piece of paper:

(pounds/sheets in a ream)*16 ounces= ounces per 1 sheet

Example:

For one sheet of standard 20lb 8 1/2 x 11 paper-

(20/2000)*16=0.16 ounces per sheet.

For USA domestic postage, a standard First Class stamp is for up to one ounce, or about 6 pages of 20lb 8 1/2" x 11" paper.

### How many calories should a 21 year old woman eat a day?

There is no exact number. The amount of calories needed daily
vaires based on a number of facts, like gender, age, activity
level, what type of foods are being eaten, metabolism, body type,
weight, and many other factors. The most rough estimate based on
the average is about 1,500 to 1,800 calories or so for that age and
gender.

### What is the difference between atomic percent and weight percent?

Atomic percent is based on the number of atoms in a sample. So
if the sample has x number of oxygen atoms and x number of iron
atoms it would report 50% oxygen and 50% iron (atomic percent).
Weight percent is based on the mass of the elements detected. So if
we used the above example and reported the results as weight
percent we would get 22.3% oxygen and 77.7% iron. Weight percent
takes into consideration the mass or atomic weight of the elements
and not just the number of atoms. Most people use weight percent
although for chemistry atomic percent may be more useful.
