(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)The weight of a ream (500 sheets) of 0.009 tonnes, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is 0.002 tonnes, each sheet weighing 0.00000500 tonnes. Paper of this size has a thickness of 0.004 caliper (0.1 mm). It's about 2,000,000,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Die (Dice). In other words, the weight of a Die (Dice) is 0.000000000000000450 times 9,000,000,000 tonnes. (for six-sided, 16 mm, rounded cube) A die, of the size most commonly used in board games and casinos, typically weight 0.00000410 tonnes. The use of dice and dice-like tools predates written history, with the oldest known examples belonging to a 5,000-year old backgammon set uncovered during an archaeological dig in modern-day Iran.
