It's about 200,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt
In other words, 0.0000000000120 megatonnes is 205,000 times the weight of a Grain of Salt, and the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.000004880 times that amount.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.00000000000000005850 megatonnes. Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 0.057 megatonnes of salt each year.
It's about 40,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed
In other words, the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.0000250 times 0.0000000000120 megatonnes.
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.000000000000000300 megatonnes. 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 20,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar
In other words, 0.0000000000120 megatonnes is 19,200 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 0.00005210 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 0.0000000000000006250 megatonnes. Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 0.00000006120 megatonnes of sugar each year.
It's about 3,500 times as heavy as a Sesame Seed
In other words, the weight of a Sesame Seed is 0.000303 times 0.0000000000120 megatonnes.
(Sesamum indicum)
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 2,500 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.00037 times 0.0000000000120 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 550 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.0018 times 0.0000000000120 megatonnes.
(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 60 times as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, the weight of a Raindrop is 0.02 times 0.0000000000120 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.
