**Useful Formulas For Paper Salesmen**

1) Basis Weight

500 sheets of 24″ X 36″ (3000 sq. ft.) equals basis weight.

Example: 500 sheets 25# basis weight 24″ X 36″ will weigh 25#.

2) To find the weight of a 500 sheet ream of non-standard sheet size:

L x W (in inches) / 864 x basis weight = Ream weight in pounds

Example: Find the ream weight of 28″ x 62″ sheets of 30# basis weight…

28 x 62 / 864 x 30 = 60.3# ream weight

3) To find the linear feet in a roll when roll width, roll weight and basis weight are known:

(Roll weight in pounds x 3000) / (Basis weight x roll width in feet) = Lineal feet

Example: Find the linear feet of a 60″ wide roll of 30/43# wet wax paper weighing 125#

(125 x 3000) / (43 x 5) = 1744 feet

4) To calculate cost per sheet:

Ream weight x price/cwt (cost per hundred weight) / 500 = Cost per sheet

Example: Find cost per sheet 48″ x 96″ 25# natural kraft

From formula # 2 above we find

25# basis weight in 48″ x 96″ size = 133.3# ream weight

133.3 x $13.50 cwt (cost per hundred weight) / 500 = $.036 per sheet

5) As a general rule, the approximate weight per inch of a 9″ diameter roll (counter roll) is 1.5#’s per inch of width
