Search in Google for "Xerox" "Facts about paper" or goto
http://www.stanford.edu/dept/itss/css/operations/Xerox-print.pdf and read
the section on "Weight" and Appendix C.
It is not easy to give a short answer, because in the USA the weight depends
upon a standard size for that particular paper.
However, if you buy Xerox paper of size USLetter, I rather suspect that it
will be specified in Imperial units.
Anyway, a conversion table in the document gives 20lb as 75gsm & 80 as 216.
