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 1,500,000,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.000000000000000770 times 5.90 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 300,000,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, 5.90 megatonnes is 280,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.00000000000000360 times that amount.(conventional; US; long-, medium-, and short-gran varieties; uncooked)
With great differences in variety, the average among a sampling of common short-, medium- and long-grain rices finds that a single grain weighs about 0.0000000000000210 megatonnes before cooking. A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about 30,000,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, the weight of a Raindrop is 0.0000000000000300 times 5.90 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.
