# Why does Europe use A4 size paper and the US uses a different size?

The simple answer is that A4 is a metric paper size and used in countries that have adopted the metric system. A4 paper is used not only in Europe, but in fact is used in all countries with the exception of the US and by proximity Canada and Mexico. It is possible, however, to buy A4 paper in the …US -- usually online. A4 (roughly similar to US letter) is a paper size specification (part of the ISO 216 paper size system). The so-called "A" range of paper sizes are a series of sheets starting at A0 and continuing all the way to A10. Each successive format is smaller than its predecessor. Thus A0 is the largest and A10 the smallest. A0 has an area of 1 square meter (1m 2 ). The "A" series is defined so that the ration of the width to the height is 1:1.4142 (1.4142 is the square root of 2). What this means is that each paper size will fit exactly in its predecessor: if you divide A0 along its height by two, you get two A1 sized pages. If you divide an A1 sheet along its height into two, you get two A2 sheets. There are many useful properties of the "A" series paper sizes.

# What is A4 paper?

A4 is the standard size of paper used for computer printouts and other uses. A4 paper is 210 ÃƒÂ— 297 mm. It has an area of 1/16 square metres. It is one of a series of paper sizes starting with A0, which has an area of 1 square metre. Another Answer The advantage of using A-series of pa…per sizes is that the height to width ratio remains constant throughout the series. So, if you were to fold an A4 sheet in half, you would have an A5 sheet of identical ratio. Reducing an A4 document to A5 will result in the same proportion of white space around any text area as there was on the original A4 document. This is not the case, for example, with US letter size -if you fold this in half, the ratio of height to width changes significantly making it impossible to reduce any text area in proportion when copying.

# Which is thicker A4 130gsm paper or A4 80gsm paper?

# Area of a4 paper?

It is 62,370 mm 2 . ==== The first respondent is correct. But here is a little more information... Notice how the area of A4 paper is approximately 1/16 of a square meter (62,500 mm 2 ), or just under that amount. This is no coincidence. Take the number 4 in "A4" paper and that is the power…, or exponent to the fraction 1/2. So (1/2) 4 , or 1/16, as measured in square meters, is the "definition" of how much paper there should be there. It was defined many years ago that A0 paper is to have exactly 1 m 2 of area. It was also defined that for each number after A0, the size, area and dimensions of the paper is exactly that of the preceding sheet, but cut in half across the longest side. So A1 paper has 1/2 the area of A0 paper, and A2 paper has 1/2 the area of A1 paper, so on. Thus A4 paper has 1/2 of 1/2 of 1/2 of 1/2 (or 1/16) of the area of A0 paper. But just as importantly are the dimensions of the sheet itself. The longest side of A2 paper has the same length as the shortest side of A1 paper. The shortest side of A2 paper is 1/2 the length of the longest side of A1 paper. It was defined this way so that scaling paper was easier. As it turns out, the longest side of any sheet is Ã¢ÂˆÂš2 times the shortest side of that same sheet. These are the standards and definitions set for the A-Series paper. So the question then is, "if A4 paper is supposed to have 62,500 mm 2 of area, then why does it have 62,370 mm 2 of area?" The answer to that question lies in rounding. By definition A0 paper has 1 m 2 of area and the ratio between longest and shortest sides is Ã¢ÂˆÂš2 to allow for this halving scaling process. It turns out this is not an exact scaling process for the actual manufactured papaer. If we kept with these definitions then A0 paper should have 840.8964... mm by 1,189.207... mm. But these values were rounded to the nearest millimeter. A0 paper actually has the dimensions of 841 mm by 1189 mm (and so an area of 0.999949 m 2 ). This error exists for each paper size (and more than likely gets compounded as you work your way up the numbers to A4 paper). Each paper size is measured, rounded and cut to whole millimeter dimensional lengths. Ultimately arriving at A4 paper at exactly 210 mm by 297 mm (and an exact area of 62,370 mm 2 ). ( Full Answer )

# What happens if you stick A4 size sheet on a pinhole camera instead of butter paper or tissue paper?

It depends what density of A4 paper you were using. At above 60 gsm you would see not very much. However at 60 gsm A4paper is getting thin enough (like tissue paper) to be slightlytransparent and so allow an image possibly to be seen. Tissue paperis used as it is thin enough to be transparent enough… to see theprojected image. If you were to make your pin hole camera a camera obscura - a boxbig enough for you to physically get inside - you could use a pieceof ordinary 80gsm A4 paper onto which to project the image from thepin hole and view it from the same side as the pin hole: in thiscase the light does not need to penetrate the paper "screen" to beviewed and so thicker, non-transparent paper can be used. Thecamera obscura was used in this way with the occupant tracing theimage projected onto their paper to create a good drawing of thescene they wanted to draw. ( Full Answer )

# What is the size of an a4 sheet of paper?

A4 is approximately 297 mm by 210mm and has an area of exactly 1/16 sq m = 0.0625 sq m = 625 sq cm .
The A series of paper is based on the fact that they all have the same ratio of width to length. Also for the next size up: 1) its width is half the previous size's length; 2) its length is th…e previous size's width; and, thus 3) its area is exactly half that of the previous size. A0 was chosen so that its area is exactly 1 sq m. From the above A0 has size length by width = Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2 m by 1/Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2 m = Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2 m by (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš8)/2 m Ã¢Â‰Âˆ 1.189 m by 0.841 m = 1189 mm by 841 mm In general, for size An: * where n is even (A0, A2, A4, ...), ie n = 2k for k = 0, 1, 2, ...: An has size (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2)/(2^k) m by (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš8)/(2^(k+1) m * where n is odd (A1, A3, A5, ...), ie n = 2k - 1 for k = 1, 2, 3, ...: An has size (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš8)/(2^k) m by (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2)/(2^k) m * area = (1/2)^n sq m Thus for A4: 4 = 2x2 Ã¢Â†Â’ the size is (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2)/(2^2) m by (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš8)/(2^(2+1)) m = (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš2)/4 m by (Ã¢ÂˆÂšÃ¢ÂˆÂš8)/8 m Ã¢Â‰Âˆ 0.297 m by 0.210 m = 297 mm by 210 mm Area = (1/2)^4 sq m = 1/16 sq m = 0.0625 sq m = 625 sq cm.

# What is the area of a A4 sheet of paper?

The A series of paper is such that each numbered size of paper has exactly half the area of the previous size. ie A1 is 1/2 the area of A0, A2 is half the area of A1, and so on. Also, A0 has an area of exactly 1 sq m. Thus A1 has an area of 1/2 that of A0, A2 has an area of (1/2)^2 = 1/4 of A0, An… has an area of (1/2)^n of that of A0 = (1/2)^n sq m 1 m = 100 cm 1 sq m = 1 m x 1 m = 100 cm x 100 cm = 10000 sq cm Ã¢Â†Â’ A4 has an area of (1/2)^4 sq m = 1/16 sq m = 0.0625 sq m = 0.0625 x 10000 sq cm = 625 sq cm.
