With an allowable range of 4.989516070 kilograms, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 6.803885550 kilograms.

In other words, 2.90 kilograms 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 1.000028 kg 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).
