A trillion dollars USD (1 x 10^12 dollars), in a stack with $233 to the inch, would reach a height of more than 67,000 miles (67,737 miles).

Approximately 67.87 miles high.

In a straight stack, one trillion US $1 bills would be a stack 67,866 miles high (109220 km).The minimum thickness of a bundle of 50 new US $1 bills is 0.215 inches (0.5 cm), not counting the band. Using the figure of 0.43 inch for 100 bills, or 4.3 inches for a stack of 1000, you reach the following dimensions:1 million one-dollar bills create a stack 4300 inches tall (358.33 feet, 109.22 meters).1 billion one-dollar bills create a stack 4,300,000 inches tall.This is 358,333 feet, or 67.866 miles, or 109.22 kilometers.1 trillion one-dollar bills create a stack 4,300,000,000 inches tall.This is 358,333,333 feet, or 67866 miles, or 109220 kilometers, more than 1/4 of the average distance to the Moon.

A US dollar bill is reportedly .0043 inches thick. Assuming the same for a 100 dollar bill, a stack of 100 dollar bills totalling one million dollars would be 43 inches tall. It takes 10,000 such bills to equal a million dollars. 10,000 X .0043 = 43 inches. Interestingly, using these measurements, a billion dollars would be just over 3583 feet tall, and a trillion dollars would be just over 678.66 miles tall!

You'd better find a tall ladder: the stack would be 3,583.33 feet tall.

It depends on how many dollar bills you have! Lacking that variable, one US dollar is 0.0043 inches thick. So, a stack of one million dollars is about 358 feet four inches high.

Back in the late 1970s I actually saw a hundred thousand dollar bill. If they still made them our stack would not be that high even for a trillion dollars since it would only take ten million of them to make a trillion dollars. But even that stack would be a sight to behold. But they stopped making that domination of bill back in the mid 1960s, 1964 I think. On our way to how high the stack would be in 100 dollars bills for the trillion dollars, most paper money (though it is not made out of paper these days), is .0043 inches thick, so one trillion in 100s would be a stack that contains 10 billion bills. The stack would be 678 MILES thick/high. It works out something like this: 10,000,000,000 times .0043 equals 43,000,000 inches which equals 3,583,333 feet which equals 678.66 MILES. If it was 50s the stack would be twice as high or 1357.32 MILES. If its 20s the stack would be 3393.30 MILES high. In 10s it would be twice as high as the previous or 6786.60 MILES and in one dollar bills it would be ten times higher or 67866 Miles high. So in Ben Franklins the stack would be 100 times smaller 678.66 Miles high. That amount in the value of the National Debt would be a stack 10179.92 MILES high. All figures are rounded to the second decimal point.

$1,389,473,684.20 Assuming that a single bill is 0.0043 inches thick. You would have to have a stack of 100's 10,795.45 miles high to equal the United States national debt of 15 trillion dollars.

Approximately 4.3 inches tall.

One trillion dollars is represented as $1,000,000,000,000. Divide that by the hundred dollar bill ($100). For those quick minded math people, you drop 2 zeros.1,000,000,000,000 / 100 = 10,000,000,000 This means there are TEN BILLION hundred dollar bills in a trillion dollars.To put that in perspective, the US bill note is about .0043 inches thick. This stack of ten billion hundred dollar bills would be 43,000,000 inches tall. That's three million five hundred eighty-three thousand three hundred thirty-three feet tall. Hard to grasp...scale it up to miles and you get a stack more than 678 miles tall. On it's side, that would be a continuous line of bills stretching from Los Angeles, Ca nearly to Salt Lake City, UT!
