More on a roll of paper 2021-05-07
From Stephen:
Can you help with the equations to calculate the length of paper required to achieve a target outside diameter when wrapped around a core please?

The inside diameter of the cardboard core is 76mm
The thickness of the wall of the cardboard core is 5mm
The thickness of the paper is 138microns
The desired outside diameter of the finished roll is 320mm

I hope you can help me with a solution, Thank you

The amount of material remaining on a roll 2016-11-11
From Yoh:

Question from Yoh:

I am trying to find impressions on a roll (either full roll or partial).
Let's say I have the following information.
- Outer Diameter of roll
- Inner Diameter of roll (cardboard core)
- thickness per layer
- Each cut off length (impression length)

Now let's say a roll has a 40in outer diameter, the cardboard core has a 3.75in diameter and a thickness of .002. Each impression has a cut off of 14inches.
With this the roll will have approximately 2,700 impressions. How would I find the remaining impressions if the outer diameter of the roll is only 6.5inches?

Thank you.

A reel of paper 2011-06-03
From keith:
if a full reel of paper has 7750 metres on it with a diameter of 1240mm and a core diameter of 100mm how can work out the thickness of each strip of paper therefore allowing me to work out the metreage of the roll when its half in diameter at say 620mm

How many labels are left on a roll? 2010-08-13
From Melissa:
Is there a simple way to calculate how many labels are left on a roll? I thought there was a way to look at the individual label length, the label thickness and the core diameter and then measure the overall diameter to calculate how many pieces were left, but I'm struggling. I've seen a tool before- I thought we called it a circle calculator, but those parameters were all that I needed to input to spit out the correct count. I never saw what was behind the scenes for this calculation. Ie factoring in revolutions or the number of pieces on each layer, etc. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

A roll of paper 2009-07-05
From mark:
is there a simple way of finding out how much is left on a roll of paper. i have read similiar questions and answers on here but all seem very complicated and not being very good at maths does not help me much. some are in inches and all have different figures to mine so if i give my figures hopefully i wil understand it better. the radius of the cardboard core is 52.25mm, the radius of the paper at 2000 linear meters is 158.625mm. the thickness is 0.17mm. when nearing the end of the paper how do i work out how much is left in a simple way. thank you in advance for any help you can give me

A roll of paper 2000-01-15
From Richard:
I have a roll of paper, wrapped around a corrugate core, whos diameter is 10.750 in. The outer diameter of the roll is approx. 60 in. The thickness of the paper is .014 in. I am trying to find out how much linear feet of paper is left on the roll, given only the diameter of paper remaining on the core.
