(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.000000000330 tons. 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 200,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar
In other words, 139.620 tons is 203,000,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 0.00000000000493 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 0.0000000006890 tons. Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 0.0675 tons of sugar each year.
It's about 35,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Sesame Seed
In other words, 139.620 tons is 34,800,000,000 times the weight of a Sesame Seed, and the weight of a Sesame Seed is 0.0000000000287 times that amount.
(Sesamum indicum)
A sesame seed weighs approximately 0.000000004010 tons. The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 2.210 tons of sesame seeds each day.
It's about 30,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 139.620 tons is 29,000,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Sand, and the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.000000000034 times that amount.
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.00000000490 tons. 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 6,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, 139.620 tons is 6,000,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.00000000017 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 0.0000000230 tons 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 600,000,000 times as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, 139.620 tons is 600,000,000 times the weight of a Raindrop, and the weight of a Raindrop is 0.0000000020 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 0.000000200 tons. 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.
