Weights of paper

Is there a conversion for weight of paper to thickness? Example: 20 pound copy paper = .0040" or.11mm

20 pound paper means one ream cut in standard size weighs 20 pounds.
While there is obviously a relationship between the the paper thickness and its weight, I could not find anything on the net detailing the conversion between the two.
I do have a fairly good paper resource bookmarked. [url]http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/don/don.html[/url]
It is the only version of a book used in the paper industry. I dictionary of terms. Though I could not find anything to help you convert weight to thickness, just thought it was a related resource I should mention.
