Take a 500-sheet ream of computer paper as it comes wrapped. Unwrap it and measure the height, width, and length of the stack. Determine the volume, measure the mass of the ream, and obtain the density. Determine how many reams come in a standard box. Estimate the total mass of the box. Discuss your assumptions and estimation procedure.

Take a 500-sheet ream of computer paper as it comes wrapped. Unwrap it and measure the height, width, and length of the stack. Determine the volume, measure the mass of the ream, and obtain the density. Determine how many reams come in a standard box. Estimate the total mass of the box. Discuss your assumptions and estimation procedure.

To determine

Find the volume by measuring the height, width, and length of the stack.

Find the density of the ream by measuring the mass of the ream.

Find the number of boxes in a standard box.

Find the total mass of the box.

Explanation of Solution

Assumptions:

Consider the computer paper as A4 size and 80 gsm.

Calculation:

Unwrap the computer paper ream and measure the dimension.

The measured dimension as follows:

Length(l)=215mmHeight(h)=305mmWidth(b)=50mm

Find the volume of the ream using the relation.

V=lbh=215×305×50=3,278,750mm3×(1m1,000mm)3=3.279×103m3

Therefore, the volume of the ream is 3.279×103m3_
