How much does a resident have to weigh to use 2 slide sheets?
Slide sheets are used to help nurses and other health professionals move patients who are unable to move themselves or have difficulty with adjusting positions. There is no minimum weight for using two slide sheets, but using two sheets is particularly recommended for patients who are completely or mostly immobile.
Different types of paper come in different thicknesses, and thus in different weights (or masses). Take a pack of 500 sheets (or some other convenient number) of your chosen paper, and weigh it. Then write a proportion to find out how much 25 of those sheets will weigh - or 50 sheets, depending on whether you plan to print one side or two. Or just weigh your 50-page document (weighing a larger amount of pages…
You did not mention paper size, so I am assuming A4 which is 29.7cm * 21cm Area of 1 sheet = 29.7cm * 21cm = 623.7 cm^2 = 0.06237 m^2 Area of 500 sheets = 0.06237 * 500 = 31.185 m^2 80gsm means 1 sq metre (m^2) of the paper weighs 80g Since the total area of 500 sheets is 31.185 m^2, so 500 sheets weigh = 31.185 * 80g = 2494.8g = 2.4948kg
Paper comes in a variety of thicknesses and sizes, so the weight of 4 sheets of paper is not a fixed quantity - although you might narrow it down by stating, the weight of 4 sheets of regular photocopy paper, in which case the answer is, it weighs more than a gram, but it's much closer to a gram than it is to a kilogram.
