This is a tougher question than you might think.  There are many experts (including my favorite, Harold McGee) that say the same thing - there is no guaranteed conversion, since sheet gealtin comes in different strengths.  Generally a package of powdered gelatin is 7 grams or 2 1/4 tsps.  The gelatin I use at work is 2 grams per sheet, so you could convert by weight to get a rough idea, though it may not be exact (about 3 sheets).

Take your choice from Sheet Gelatin to powdered

Depends on quality and bloom count of gel.  This question tricky to answer. I would go 2 to 21/2 sheets.
