As sweet and beautiful as writing can be, it can become less interesting with time, and this is usually the case particularly for newbies who are inexperienced in the field. At such times you begin to ask yourself questions like “how many pages is 5000 words?” and other related questions, at that point you become particular about your word count because you’re getting bored and tired of the work. Having a 5000 word count or better still writing up to 5000 words is not as difficult as many think it to be, but you have to take away your focus from the word count.
But, to answer the question, there is no definite answer as it depends on a couple of things like if you have pages single spaced or pages double spaced. 5000 words that are handwritten is not the same as if it was to be typed like in a book or in a novel. Calculating this on Kindle will even give a variety of results making it more difficult to arrive at a specific or general calculation, this is because you can adjust font settings in your kindle to change the font or increase/reduce font size, you can adjust your kindle to show more than one page per time, also, kindle pages depend on the screen resolution of your device.
If you have the pages single spaced, the number of pages would be fewer than if you have the pages double spaced. If you are typing in Microsoft word with the regular 12 point font on an a4 paper size, here’s what to expect:
- If you have the pages single spaced, you will have 10 pages
- If you have the pages double spaced, you will have 20 pages
- If you have the pages 1.5 spaced, you will have 15 pages
Typing with the pages single spaced would make your work look a bit clumsy unlike pages double spaced which is usually the official format for academic research work. Academic research is usually recommended to be with Times New Roman or Arial font and a font size of 12.
So to answer the question “how many pages is a 5000 words essay?” 5000 words will be roughly about 10 pages single spaced or 20 pages double spaced. So clearly, a document with pages double spaced will have double number of the pages for a document that has single spaced pages.
An example of a 5000 words essay will include dissertation research, graduate theses, or a very comprehensive blog post.
Let’s overview the word count and how many pages you need for a specific number of words.
