Basis Weight
The weight of 500 sheets (a ream) of paper in it's basic size. Each category of paper (ledger, offset, cover, tag, index) has it's own basic size, so weights of papers from different categories cannot be easily compared without a conversion chart. For example 20# bond is heavier per square inch than 40# offset. Confusing we know, we didn't make the system.
