It's about as heavy as a Grain of Rice
(long grain; 14% moisture content)
A single long grain of rice weighs an average of 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes. A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about six-and-a-half times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.150 times 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes.
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.00000000000000440 megatonnes. 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 eight times as heavy as a Sesame Seed
In other words, 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes is 7.970 times the weight of a Sesame Seed, and the weight of a Sesame Seed is 0.1250 times that amount.
(Sesamum indicum)
A sesame seed weighs approximately 0.000000000000003640 megatonnes. The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 0.000002010 megatonnes of sesame seeds each day.
It's about one-tenth as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, the weight of a Raindrop is 10 times 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes.
(a.k.a. drop, a.k.a. droplet) (average)
The weight of a raindrop depends heavily on the type of weather, but averages about 0.000000000000200 megatonnes. 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.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as heavy as a Nail
In other words, the weight of a Nail is 27 times 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes.
(for 15-gauge, 2-inch, finishing nails)
A two-inch finishing nail weighs 0.000000000000790 megatonnes. Nails have been in use for more than 5,400 years and were ven used as a medium of exchange in ancient times.
It's about one-fortieth as heavy as a Jelly Bean
In other words, the weight of a Jelly Bean is 38 times 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes.
(for Jelly Belly beans; approximate)
Made of sugar, corn syrup, and pectin, a single jelly bean weighs about 0.00000000000110 megatonnes. President Ronald Reagan cited jelly beans as his favorite candy and 0.00000320 megatonnes of the candies were served at his first inauguration in 1981.
It's about 45 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar
In other words, 0.0000000000000290 megatonnes is 46.40 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 0.0216 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 0.0000000000000006250 megatonnes. Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 0.00000006120 megatonnes of sugar each year.
