Using demensions of 156 x 66.3 x .109 mm, if the bills are packed perfectly in the room (no air space), the total volume of 5 billion bills would be 563.68 m^2.
This gives a height of 5.6368 m in a room 10m x 10m

If you placed $100 bills (american) side by side inside a room that was 10m by 10m, how high would the stack of bills reach?
Originally posted by the fonz01as per the title of the thread the OP was assuming you had $50 billion dollars in $100 bills. now imagine a 10x10 room with no ceiling. how high up the wall would the money go if you packed the room? this is definitely answerable without a given height for the room.

anyway if i had the money to do this im pretty damn sure i can think of something a hell of alot better to do with it.
Originally posted by forkedknightbut since it's $50 billion dollars in $100 bills, shouldn't it be 500 million bills? i.e. i think you're off by a factor of 10...should it be 5208 layers and thus .56m tall?
On the other hand, if you assume worst case packing:
You can fit 64 bills lengthwise and 150 bills width-wise in a 10m x 10m room, for a total of 9600 bills in each layer.
Therefore 5 billion bills sitting in 52,083 layers would be 5.677m tall.
Originally posted by MetBierOpi don't think so.... he said that if the thickness is .1mm then you'd be able to fit all of them side by side in a length of 10m. but 10m = 10,000 mm = 100,000 bills.
D Ma G has the correct answer..

50 billion is teh prize for teh answer not the question. We are not told the number of bills, so I am assuming only two are placed side by side such that the answer is the width of a single bill.
