A 250-word essay is different lengths on a page depending on whether it is double- or single-spaced. Academic essays usually are required to be double-spaced. Generally, a double-spaced, 250-word essay takes up 0.6 page in length, assuming the essay is written in 12 point Times New Roman font.
The font affects the visual size of the essay. For instance, a 250-word essay written in 12 point Verdana takes up more space on a page than one written in 12 point Times New Roman or Ariel.
A 250-word essay with no added graphics takes up roughly 30 kilobytes of space on a computer.
