It's about two times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 2.1 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.48 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 21 mg 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 one-fifth as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 0.2 times the weight of a Raindrop, and the weight of a Raindrop is 5 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 200 mg. 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.
It's about ten times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 9.9 times the weight of a Grain of Sand, and the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.1 times that amount.
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 4.4 mg. 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 twelve times as heavy as a Sesame Seed
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 12 times the weight of a Sesame Seed, and the weight of a Sesame Seed is 0.083 times that amount.
(Sesamum indicum)
A sesame seed weighs approximately 3.64 mg. The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 2,010,000,000 miligrams of sesame seeds each day.
It's about one-twentieth as heavy as a Nail
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 0.06 times the weight of a Nail, and the weight of a Nail is 18 times that amount.
(for 15-gauge, 2-inch, finishing nails)
A two-inch finishing nail weighs 790 miligrams. Nails have been in use for more than 5,400 years and were ven used as a medium of exchange in ancient times.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as heavy as a Jelly Bean
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 0.0 times the weight of a Jelly Bean, and the weight of a Jelly Bean is 25 times that amount.
(for Jelly Belly beans; approximate)
Made of sugar, corn syrup, and pectin, a single jelly bean weighs about 1,100 miligrams. President Ronald Reagan cited jelly beans as his favorite candy and 3,200,000,000 miligrams of the candies were served at his first inauguration in 1981.
It's about one-thirtieth as heavy as a Paper Clip
In other words, 43.610 miligrams is 0.03 times the weight of a Paper Clip, and the weight of a Paper Clip is 32 times that amount.
(average)
Notwithstanding the tremendous variation in sizes and materials, a typical paperclip weighs about 1,400 miligrams. The country of Norway has used the paper clip as something of a national symbol since the end of World War II based on the erroneous notion that the paperclip was invented by a Norwegian, Johan Vaaler. However, the paperclip had already been in existence for at least 30 years by the time of Vaaler patented his paperclip design.
