It's about as heavy as a Grain of Salt.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.00001560 monme (匁). Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 728,000,000 monme (匁) of salt each year.
It's about one-fifth as heavy as a Poppy Seed.
In other words, the weight of a Poppy Seed is 5 times 0.00001560 monme (匁).
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.0000800 monme (匁). The true pigment of a poppy seed is brown in color, while the characteristic bluish color is an optical illusion caused by a layer of calcium oxalate crystals refracting light rays.
It's about one-tenth as heavy as a Grain of Sugar.
In other words, 0.00001560 monme (匁) is 0.0936 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 10.70 times that amount.
(a.k.a. white sugar, a.k.a. white refined sugar, a.k.a. table sugar, a.k.a. sucrose, a.k.a. saccharose)
A grain of sugar weighs approximately 0.000167 monme (匁). Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 16,300 monme (匁) of sugar each year.
It's about one-sixtieth as heavy as a Sesame Seed.
In other words, 0.00001560 monme (匁) is 0.0161 times the weight of a Sesame Seed, and the weight of a Sesame Seed is 62.10 times that amount.
(Sesamum indicum)
A sesame seed weighs approximately 0.000971 monme (匁). The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 536,000 monme (匁) of sesame seeds each day.
It's about one-seventy-fifth as heavy as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Sand is 77 times 0.00001560 monme (匁).
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.0012 monme (匁). In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15.10 m (49.55 ft) in height.
It's about one-five-hundredth as heavy as a Grain of Rice.
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Rice is 500 times 0.00001560 monme (匁).
(long grain; 14% moisture content)
A single long grain of rice weighs an average of 0.0077 monme (匁). A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about one-three-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as a Raindrop.
In other words, the weight of a Raindrop is 3,000 times 0.00001560 monme (匁).
(a.k.a. drop, a.k.a. droplet) (average)
The weight of a raindrop depends heavily on the type of weather, but averages about 0.05 monme (匁). The familiar teardrop shape of a raindrop is actually an optical illusion, caused by the reflection of the light and the motion of the drop.
