It's about 150 times as heavy as a Mouse
In other words, the weight of a Mouse is 0.0071 times 0.00000000290 megatonnes.
(a.k.a. "House mouse", Mus musculus) (adult)
The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 0.0000000000210 megatonnes. While most mice typically live two to three years, the Methuselah Mouse Prize — an award administered by a non-profit organization which advances aging-related research — was once awarded to a team of scientists whose research resulted in a mouse living just under five years.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Horse
In other words, the weight of a Horse is 140 times 0.00000000290 megatonnes.
(Equus ferus caballus) (Arabian, adult)
n Arabian riding horse (or similar breed) weighs between 0.000000420 megatonnes. During races, horses must carry jockeys and their equipment, which in the Kentucky Derby, for example, can weigh up to 0.0000000540 megatonnes.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Grand Piano
In other words, the weight of a Grand Piano is 160 times 0.00000000290 megatonnes.
(for Steinway & Sons, Model D Concert Grand Piano)
A Grand Piano, of the kind used for concert performances in large music halls, weighs 0.000000450 megatonnes. Well-made pianos such as this may last 75 to 100 years.
It's about one-two-hundredth as heavy as a Polar Bear
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 0.00562 times the weight of a Polar Bear, and the weight of a Polar Bear is 178 times that amount.
(Ursus maritimus) (adult, male)
An adult, male polar bear weighs between 0.0000005160 megatonnes. Polar bears are so heavily insulated by their 9.9 cm (3.9 in) layer of blubber that they are often difficult to detect using infrared photography sensors.
It's about one-two-hundredth as heavy as a Grizzly Bear
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 0.00557 times the weight of a Grizzly Bear, and the weight of a Grizzly Bear is 180 times that amount.
(a.k.a. brown bear, a.k.a. silver bear, Ursus arctos horribilis) (Adult, male, coastal area population average)
An adult, male grizzly bear from a coastal area (where food is plentiful) can weigh up to 0.0000005210 megatonnes. In spite of their tremendous size, grizzly bears can run at speeds of up to 55 kph (34 mph).
It's about 200 times as heavy as a Compact disc
In other words, 0.00000000290 megatonnes is 190 times the weight of a Compact disc, and the weight of a Compact disc is 0.0053 times that amount.
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 0.0000000000150 megatonnes. Data is stored on CDs by encoding into the track a series of tiny pits — each between 3.5 and 850 µm (0.00014 and 0.033 in) in length.
It's about one-two-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Cow
In other words, the weight of a Cow is 230 times 0.00000000290 megatonnes.
(for Holstein, a.k.a. Holstein Friesian, a.k.a. Friesian, Bos primigenius) (adult, heifer)
A mature Holstein cow (the well-known black-and-white, spotted breed of cow) typically weighs 0.000000680 megatonnes. President William Howard Taft (1909 - 1913) kept a Holstein cow named Pauline Wayne on the White House grounds — a gift from a Wisconsin senator and the source of the First Family's milk.
