A stack of papers.
Sheets of thick polythene stretched over a framework of bamboo canes would work.
It is physically impossible to fold a piece of paper in half more than 8 times. However, assuming you could do it (though it would be easier to cut the pile so far in half and put one half on top of the other), then: After 1 fold the stack has 2 sheets After 2 folds the stack has 4 sheets After 3 folds the stack has 8 sheets After n folds the stack has 2^n sheets After 50 folds the stack will be 2⁵⁰ sheets thick As each sheet is 0.1mm, the stack will be: 2⁵⁰ × 0.1 mm = 112589990684262.4 mm thick = 112589990.6842624 km thick ≈ 1.126 × 10¹¹ m thick
That would be 4300 inches -about a s high as a 35 story building
A stack of 100 pennies would measure 15.2cm or six inches tall. (A penny has a thickness of 0.152cm)
According to the U.S. Treasury a dollar bill is .0043 inches thick. Therefore, a stack of 1,000 one dollar bills would be: 4.3 inches thick.
870; a quarter has a thickness of about 0.07 inches, and 61 / 0.07 = 870.
A stack of 1303 nickels.
Usually a group of paper is called a ream. This would be around 500 sheets. Otherwise it is referred to as a stack of paper.
how many nickels would it take to stack nickels 100 inches tall
195 100-dollar bills would be 0.84 inches tall.
22 X22 inches it would be just one. If you mean 22 X 22 feet you would need 18 4X8 sheets.
A Ream is a measure of the NUMBER of sheets of paper (500 sheets) How thick that would be will depend on the weight of the paper. Heavier paper is thicker.
12 x 3 / 4 = 9 The stack of 12 boards would be 9 inches high.
The earth is about 24,900 miles circumference at the equator. That's 1,577,664,000 inches. At 11 inches sheet length, divide by 11. That's 143,424,000 sheets
A sheet of standard copy paper is about .004 in thick. 100 sheets would therefore have a thickness of about 0.4 in. Modern, lightweight paper sold for home printing is much thinner and 500 sheets have a thickness of 1" approx. So, 100 sheets would be about 0.2 in.
polythene and perspex
The US paper currency (which is all the same size) is reportedly 0.0043 inches thick.Thus 50000 * 0.0043 = 215 inches
The first cut will produce 2 sheets (21 or 2 to the first power), the next cut will produce 4 sheets (22 or 2 to the second power or 2 times 2), the next cut will produce 8 sheets (23 or 2 to the third power or 2 times 2 times 2), the next cut will produce 16 sheets (24 or 2 to the fourth power or 2 times 2 times 2 times 2) and so on. The 50th cut will produce (250) sheets and that will be 1,125,899,906,842,624 sheets. If paper avgerages 0.081 mm thickness per sheet (per WikiAnswers.com), that would make the sheet stack 91,197,892,454,252.544 mm thick. Conversion to other units is left as an Excercise for the Student.
Theoretically, 67.866 miles. If any bill is not compressed any further than its "normal" thickness of 0.0043 inches (0.11 mm), then one billion bills would make a stack of 4.3 million inches (67.8 miles).
A US dollar bill is 0.0043 inches (just over 1/10 mm) thick, requiring nearly 233 dollar bills for a stack 1 inch high. A billion dollars in a vertical stack would then be 67.8 miles high. (4.3 million inches).
This is done to not only make the wood sheet thicker, but is also done to strengthen the overall sheet. If all the grains were in one direction, the stack of sheets would only be strong in forces acting in that direction. However, if the grains had multiple directions, the overall stack of sheets would be much stronger. They are probably only done perpendicularly for convenience in cutting, because if all 360-degrees were used, it would be a lot more difficult to cut straight lines.
Nickels are 1.95 mm thick, although that could vary depending on wear. 1.95mm is about 0.076-0.077 inches. So, it would be about 1298-1316 nickels.
11 ga stainless steel is 0.118 inches thick or if you stack 11 pieces of 11 ga stainless steel it would be one inch thick.
