It's about as heavy as Christ the Redeemer (statue)
It's about half as heavy as a Tree (Sierra Redwood)
In other words, 9,800,000,000 grains is 0.490 times the weight of a Tree (Sierra Redwood), and the weight of a Tree (Sierra Redwood) is 2 times that amount.(a.k.a. Giant Sequoia, a.k.a. Sierran redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia, a.k.a. "Big Tree", Sequoiadendron giganteum)
The weight of wood in a Giant Sequoia is 20,000,000,000 grains. General Sherman, a specimen in Sequoia National Park in Visalia, California, is the largest tree in the world by volume, with an estimated weight of about 29,000,000,000 grains.
It's about four times as heavy as a House
In other words, 9,800,000,000 grains is 4.07 times the weight of a House, and the weight of a House is 0.2460 times that amount.(149 sq. m, single-level, unfurnished)
A 149 sq. m (1,600 sq. ft), single-story, unfurnished house (without extensive masonry) of the type commonly found in America would weigh approximately 2,410,000,000 grains, based on the weight of the included materials. In contrast, a yurt — a type of dwelling structure popular among nomadic peoples of East Asia — typically weighs less than 7,100,000 grains.
It's about four-and-a-half times as heavy as The Statue of Liberty (without base)
In other words, the weight of The Statue of Liberty (without base) is 0.220 times 9,800,000,000 grains.(a.k.a. Liberty Enlightening the World, a.k.a. La Liberté éclairant le monde) (total weight, including foundation)
The total weight of the Statue of Liberty — the Statue's copper and framework only, excluding the base — is roughly 2,200,000,000 grains. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about six times as heavy as a Blue Whale
In other words, 9,800,000,000 grains is 6.08 times the weight of a Blue Whale, and the weight of a Blue Whale is 0.1640 times that amount.(Balaenoptera musculus)
Blue whales weigh between 1,610,000,000 grains. The largest mammal to have ever lived, blue whales feed almost exclusively on krill — tiny invertebrates weighing about 15.40 grains each.
It's about nine times as heavy as The Space Shuttle
In other words, 9,800,000,000 grains is 8.90 times the weight of The Space Shuttle, and the weight of The Space Shuttle is 0.110 times that amount.(for Endeavour, a.k.a. OV-105, a.k.a. Orbiter Vehicle-105) (empty weight, excluding main engines)
When empty, the space shuttle Endeavour weighs 1,100,000,000 grains. The shuttle's spacious cargo bay carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into orbit in 1999 — a payload that weighed 300,000,000 grains.
It's about one-fifteenth as heavy as The Eiffel Tower
