It's about as heavy as a Brick
(Standard, traditional face brick - 1,900 cu. cm (120 cu. in))
A standard, traditional face brick weighs an average of 0.00000000290 megatonnes. The steeple of the Church of St. Martin in Landshut, Germany is said to be the tallest brick tower in the world at a height of 130.6 m (428.5 ft) and was constructed using an estimated 650,000 bricks.
It's about one-and-three-tenths times as heavy as a Chihuahua
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 1.290 times the weight of a Chihuahua, and the weight of a Chihuahua is 0.7750 times that amount.(a.k.a. Chihuahue(o) (FCI standard)
The F&d&ration Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for Chihuahuas to weigh about 0.000000002250 megatonnes. Relative to their body sizes, Chihuahuas have the largest brain size of any dog breed.
It's about three-fifths as heavy as a Gallon of Paint
It's about three-fifths as heavy as a Cat
In other words, the weight of a Cat is 2 times 0.00000000290 megatonnes.(Felis catus) (Domestic; healthy weight)
The average domestic cat should weigh between 0.00000000500 megatonnes. Cats are known for their righting reflex, which allows them to land on their feet and survive falls from heights of 1 m (3 ft) up to about 21 m.
It's about two times as heavy as a Human Brain
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 2.150 times the weight of a Human Brain, and the weight of a Human Brain is 0.4650 times that amount.(adult)
The average weight of an adult human brain is between 0.000000001350 megatonnes. In humans and primates, sight and vision utilize about 30 different parts of the brain which together account for about half of the brain's size.
It's about two-fifths as heavy as a Bowling Ball
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 0.426227040 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 2.346167430 times that amount.(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 0.000000004989516070 megatonnes, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 0.000000006803885550 megatonnes. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 0.00000000500 megatonnes will float in water.
It's about three times as heavy as a liter of Water
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 2.8999190 times the weight of a liter of Water, and the weight of a liter of Water is 0.34483720 times that amount.(fresh; 4° C / 39.2° F; maximum density)
Contrary to popular belief, 1 liter (0.0.264172052358148 gal) of water at 4° C / 39.2° F (its point of maximum density) weighs 0.0000000010000280 megatonnes rather than 1 kg exactly. The total volume of water on the planet Earth is about 13,590,000,000,000,000,000 (13.59 quntillion) L (3,590,000,000,000,000,000 gallons).
