How big is 470.98 cubic feet?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.000000000004 times as big as an Halley's Comet.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000000033 times the size of an Halley's Comet, and the size of an Halley's Comet is 300,000,000,000 times that amount.
(Comet Halley, officially "1P/Halley") (volume calculated based on 2005 dimensions)
Halley's Comet, the famous comet visible to observers on Earth approximately every 76 years, has a peanut- or potato-shaped nucleus made of rock, dust, ice, and various frozen gasses. The nucleus measures approximately 15 km by 8 km by 8 km, which yields a calculated volume of 140,000,000,000,000.0 cubic feet. The coma of the Comet — the trail of sublimated gasses that give the Comet its visibility — may be up to 100,000 km in length.
It's about 0.000000000003 times as big as The Grand Canyon.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000000032 times the size of The Grand Canyon, and the size of The Grand Canyon is 313,000,000,000 times that amount.
(Coconino County and Mohave Counties, Arizona, near Fredonia and Grand Canyon, Arizona)
It's about 0.000000000000006 times as big as The Gulf of Mexico.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.000000000000005479 times the size of The Gulf of Mexico, and the size of The Gulf of Mexico is 182,500,000,000,000.0 times that amount.
(water volume)
It's about 0.000000000000000010 times as big as Earth's Oceans.
In other words, 470.98 cubic feet is 0.0000000000000000095 times the size of Earth's Oceans, and the size of Earth's Oceans is 110,000,000,000,000,000.0 times that amount.
(Total water volume of Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic, and Southern Oceans) (estimated)
Over 97% of the Earth's water is found in the planet's five oceans for a total volume of about 49,000,000,000,000,000,000.0 cubic feet. The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean, covering 165,760,000 sq. km — more than double the area of the Atlantic Ocean at 82,400,000 sq. km.
