COMMENTS

Also exact width of the A3 paper size measured in meters.

According to the ISO 216 standard, the A0 paper size is defined to have an area of 1 square meter where the ratio of the length to the width is sqrt(2), so the length is 2^(1/4) m and the width is 2^(-1/4) m. For each n >= 0, the length of the size A(n+1) is equal to the width of the size A(n) and the width of the size A(n+1) is equal to half of the length of the size A(n), so the area of the size A(n+1) is half of that of A(n). Equivalently, the length of the A(n) size is 2^(-n/2 + 1/4) m and the width is 2^(-n/2 - 1/4) m. For the A4 size, the exact length and width are 2^(-7/4) m = 297.3 mm and 2^(-9/4) m = 210.2 mm (A308321), and the actual length and width are 297 mm and 210 mm.

EXAMPLE

The exact lengths, widths and areas of the A-series is given by:

  size |       exact length      |        exact width      | exact area (mm^2)

   A0  | 2^(  1/4) m = 1189.2 mm | 2^(- 1/4) m =  840.8 mm |  1000000

   A1  | 2^(- 1/4) m =  840.8 mm | 2^(- 3/4) m =  594.6 mm |   500000

   A2  | 2^(- 3/4) m =  594.6 mm | 2^(- 5/4) m =  420.4 mm |   250000

   A3  | 2^(- 5/4) m =  420.4 mm | 2^(- 7/4) m =  297.3 mm |   125000

   A4  | 2^(- 7/4) m =  297.3 mm | 2^(- 9/4) m =  210.2 mm |    62500

   A5  | 2^(- 9/4) m =  210.2 mm | 2^(-11/4) m =  148.7 mm |    31250

   A6  | 2^(-11/4) m =  148.7 mm | 2^(-13/4) m =  105.1 mm |    15625

   A7  | 2^(-13/4) m =  105.1 mm | 2^(-15/4) m =   74.3 mm |     7812.5

   A8  | 2^(-15/4) m =   74.3 mm | 2^(-17/4) m =   52.6 mm |     3906.25

   A9  | 2^(-17/4) m =   52.6 mm | 2^(-19/4) m =   37.2 mm |     1953.125

   A10 | 2^(-19/4) m =   37.2 mm | 2^(-21/4) m =   26.3 mm |      976.5625

And the actual lengths, widths and areas is given by (note that the actual areas are always smaller than the exact areas):

  size | actual length (mm) | actual width (mm) | actual area (mm^2)

   A0  |        1189        |        841        |  999949 (99.9949%)

   A1  |         841        |        594        |  499554 (99.9108%)

   A2  |         594        |        420        |  249480 (99.7920%)

   A3  |         420        |        297        |  124740 (99.7920%)

   A4  |         297        |        210        |   62370 (99.7920%)

   A5  |         210        |        148        |   31080 (99.4560%)

   A6  |         148        |        105        |   15540 (99.4560%)

   A7  |         105        |         74        |    7770 (99.4560%)

   A8  |          74        |         52        |    3848 (98.5088%)

   A9  |          52        |         37        |    1924 (98.5088%)

   A10 |          37        |         26        |     962 (98.5088%)
