    If you FOLD a piece of paper 50 times....

    how tall would be the whole thing? Assuming that you have a large enough piece of paper.


    Closest estimate wins my repsect. No cheating.

    EDIT: Ignore the obvious fact that it's impossible. I'm just talking about a hypothetical here.

    Fail to the 7 times people

    You can fold a piece of paper up to about 11 times

    They made a piece of paper on mythbusters by taping together heaps of huge paper rolls (it was the size of an aircraft hangar floor) and they could fold it 11 times

    (they needed a steam roller thing in the end, but they easily got past 7)

    You cant fold a piece of a4 paper more than 7 times, but you can fold a bigger piece more

    And yeah depends on the type of paper

    Wearing white for Eastertide.

    Now, of my threescore years and ten,
    Twenty will not come again,
    And take from seventy springs a score,
    It only leaves me fifty more.

    And since to look at things in bloom
    Fifty springs are little room,
    About the woodlands I will go
    To see the cherry hung with snow. (no homo)

    its really hard to fold a paper 7-8 times and starts to approach the impossible for more than 11-12 folds.
    to fold paper 50 times would probably need some paper thats the size of texas and thin as 1 ply toilet paper.

    To answer your original question though, a sheet of paper is said to be 0.1mm thick. Each time you fold it you double the thickness, so it would be

    (0.1)(2^50) = 112589990684262.4 mm, or 112589990 km

    edit: forgot a 0 in the km conversion

    LOVELIEST of trees, the cherry now
    Is hung with bloom along the bough,
    And stands about the woodland ride
    Wearing white for Eastertide.

    Now, of my threescore years and ten,
    Twenty will not come again,
    And take from seventy springs a score,
    It only leaves me fifty more.

    And since to look at things in bloom
    Fifty springs are little room,
    About the woodlands I will go
    To see the cherry hung with snow. (no homo)

    This might be something interesting, maybe related:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambalap..._Paal_Paayasam

    According to the legend, Lord Krishna once appeared in the form of a sage in the court of the king who ruled the region and challenged him for a game of chess (or chaturanga). The king being a chess enthusiast himself gladly accepted the invitation. The prize had to be decided before the game and the king asked the sage to choose his prize in case he wins. The sage told the king that he had a very modest claim and being a man of few material needs, all he wished was a few grains of rice. The amount of rice itself shall be determined using the chess-board in the following manner. One grain of rice shall be placed in the first square, two grains in the second square, four in the third square, eight in the fourth square and so on. Every square will have double the number of grains of its predecessor.

    Upon hearing the demand, the king was unhappy since the sage requested only a few grains of rice instead of other riches from the kingdom which the king would've been happy to donate. He requested the sage to add other items too to his prize but the sage declined.

    So the game of chess started and needless to say the king lost the game. It was time to pay the sage his agreed-upon prize. As he started adding grains of rice to the chess board, the king soon realised the true nature of the sage's demands. By the 20th square, the number had reached one-million grains of rice and by the 40th square, it became one-trillion. The royal grainery soon ran out of grains of rice. The king realised that even if he provides all the rice in his kingdom and his adjacent kingdoms, he will never be able to fulfill the promised reward. The number of grains was increasing as a geometric progression and the total amount of rice required to fill a 64-squared chess board is (2^64 - 1) which is equal to 18446744073709551615 grains (about 18*10^18, or 18 billion billion grains). This amount of rice would weigh about 461*10^12 kg, or 461 billion tonnes (1,000 grains of rice weigh about 25g [http://www.agric.nsw.gov.au/reader/t...nd_Weight.htm).

    Upon seeing the dilemma, the sage appeared to the king in his true-form, that of lord Krishna. He told the King that he doesn't have to pay the debt immediately but can pay him over time. The king shall serve paal-payasam (made of rice) in the temple freely to the pilgrims every day until the debt is paid off.

    I answered the question already. 112589990 km. About 30 million km less that the distance to the sun.
