 It's about 7,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt In other words, 420 kilograms is 7,180,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Salt, and the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.000000000139 times that amount. The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.00000005850 kilograms. Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 57,000,000 kilograms of salt each year. It's about 1,500,000,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed In other words, 420 kilograms is 1,400,000,000 times the weight of a Poppy Seed, and the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.00000000071 times that amount. (Papaver somniferum)Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.000000300 kilograms. The true pigment of a poppy seed is brown in color, while the characteristic bluish color is an optical illusion caused by a layer of calcium oxalate crystals refracting light rays. It's about 650,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar In other words, 420 kilograms is 672,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 0.00000000149 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 0.0000006250 kilograms. Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 61.2 kg of sugar each year. It's about 100,000,000 times as heavy as a Sesame Seed In other words, 420 kilograms is 115,000,000 times the weight of a Sesame Seed, and the weight of a Sesame Seed is 0.0000000087 times that amount. (Sesamum indicum)A sesame seed weighs approximately 0.000003640 kilograms. The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 2,009.32 kg of sesame seeds each day. It's about 95,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand In other words, 420 kilograms is 95,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Sand, and the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.000000011 times that amount. (medium grain)With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.00000440 kilograms. 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 20,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice In other words, 420 kilograms is 20,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.000000050 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 0.0000210 kilograms 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 2,000,000 times as heavy as a Raindrop In other words, 420 kilograms is 2,000,000 times the weight of a Raindrop, and the weight of a Raindrop is 0.00000050 times that amount. (a.k.a. drop, a.k.a. droplet) (average)The weight of a raindrop depends heavily on the type of weather, but averages about 0.0002 kilograms. 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.
