A single page has 500 words single spaced and 250 words double spaced. Each page has 1,000 single-spaced words and 500 double-spaced words. 1,500 single-spaced words and 750 double-spaced words 2,000 single-spaced words, 1,000 double-spaced words.
Thus, to write two full pages, you need: 3,000 single-spaced words or 4,500 double-spaced words.
Pages: You can have up to 8 pages of text, side by side. Your printer will usually print 4 pages per sheet of paper. So you need: 40 sheets of paper.
Words/page: This is the most difficult part. It depends on how much detail you want to provide and how long your essay is going to be. If your essay is very detailed, it might take 20,000 words or more per page. If your essay is short, it could be as few as 5,000 words per page. Usually, an average essay needs about 10,000 words per page.
So, to write two full pages, you need: between 25,000 and 45,000 words.
That's a lot of words! Where do you get that much vocabulary from? Actually, it isn't that hard if you know what kinds of words are used in what kind of contexts.
3500 words equals how many pages? A word count of 3500 results in around 7 pages single spaced and approximately double that—14 pages double spaced. The more space between the lines of text the longer it takes to read so 14 pages is quite a lot!
The number of characters per page varies depending on the font size used but for convenience we can say there are around 250 to 300 characters per page.
This means that a book with 7000 characters would be about 13 pages long if printed in 10 point type. A page length of around 1550 characters allows about two columns of text, ideal for writing essays or reports.
A character is defined as a visual image consisting of one symbol, such as a letter, figure, or punctuation mark. Characters make up the textual content of a document or text file. The number of characters contained in a document provides an indication of its size; thus, documents of different sizes may contain the same number of characters if they are written using typographical styles with larger or smaller fonts. In general, small texts are written using small letters while large texts are written using large letters. There are some exceptions such as when describing people's names or addresses when spelling the name or address out in full is necessary for clarity rather than just using first initials or last names.
While a basic rule of thumb is that one page equals 500 words (single spaced) or 250 words (double spaced), this is only a rough estimate. The truth is that the amount of words per page is determined by a number of parameters, including font type, font size, spacing components, margin spacing, and paragraph length, to mention a few. For example, if you change the font size of your document from 12 point to 7 point, the amount of words on each page will decrease by 22.7%.
There are actually two pages of text for every printed page. Pages are made up of elements such as lines, paragraphs, and characters. Lines are the horizontal units of the page while paragraphs are vertical groups of words or lines that function as units. Characters are the individual letters that make up words; there are about 5-6 characters to a line and 100-120 characters to a page.
To calculate the number of words in a document, simply divide the total number of characters by the number of words per page. In this case, we would divide 17706 by 6 = 2894.4.
This means that two pages of text contain 17706 words or less.
