1. A sheet comprising:
a structure having a first surface and a second surface opposite to the first surface;
a support provided on an entire surface of the first surface of the structure; and
an adhesive layer having a surface on which the structure is disposed,
wherein the second surface of the structure is directly on top of the surface of the adhesive layer,
wherein the support has no opening,
wherein the structure comprises a plurality of linear-bodies with a volume resistivity R from 1.0×10−7 Ωcm to 7.5×10−5 Ωcm, extending in one direction, arranged parallel to one another, and spaced apart from one another,
wherein the linear-bodies comprise a metal wire, the sheet satisfying the relation: 121≥L/D≥3, wherein D represents a diameter of the linear-bodies and D≥0.0014, and L represents a spacing between adjacent ones of the linear-bodies, and also satisfying the relation: 5.57≥(D2/R)×(1/L)≥0.003, wherein D represents the diameter of the linear-bodies and D≥0.0014, L represents the spacing between adjacent ones of the linear-bodies, R represents the volume resistivity of the linear-bodies, and D and L are in units of cm,
wherein the adhesive layer is adapted to be bonded to an object,
wherein each of the plurality of linear-bodies disposed on the surface of the adhesive layer has a part that faces the surface of the adhesive layer, and
wherein the adhesive layer is provided to an entirety of the part of each linear-body facing the surface of the adhesive layer.
