Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-three-hundred-thousandth as heavy as The Space Shuttle.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.0000031 times the weight of The Space Shuttle, and the weight of The Space Shuttle is 320,000 times that amount.
(for Endeavour, a.k.a. OV-105, a.k.a. Orbiter Vehicle-105) (empty weight, excluding main engines)
When empty, the space shuttle Endeavour weighs 18,000,000 fluid drams (ʒ). The shuttle's spacious cargo bay carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into orbit in 1999 — a payload that weighed 5,100,000 fluid drams (ʒ).
It's about 350,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 355,000 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 0.00000282 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 0.000161 fluid drams (ʒ). Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 15,700 fluid drams (ʒ) of sugar each year.
It's about one-four-hundred-fifty-thousandth as heavy as a Blue Whale.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.00000212 times the weight of a Blue Whale, and the weight of a Blue Whale is 472,000 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus)
Blue whales weigh between 26,900,000 fluid drams (ʒ). The largest mammal to have ever lived, blue whales feed almost exclusively on krill — tiny invertebrates weighing about 0.257 fluid drams (ʒ) each.
It's about one-seven-hundred-thousandth as heavy as a House.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.00000142 times the weight of a House, and the weight of a House is 704,000 times that amount.
(149 sq. m, single-level, unfurnished)
A 149 sq. m (1,600 sq. ft), single-story, unfurnished house (without extensive masonry) of the type commonly found in America would weigh approximately 40,100,000 fluid drams (ʒ), based on the weight of the included materials. In contrast, a yurt — a type of dwelling structure popular among nomadic peoples of East Asia — typically weighs less than 118,000 fluid drams (ʒ).
It's about 750,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed.
In other words, the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.0000014 times 57 fluid drams (ʒ).
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.000077 fluid drams (ʒ). 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 0.0000004 times as heavy as Christ the Redeemer (statue).
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.000000349 times the weight of Christ the Redeemer (statue), and the weight of Christ the Redeemer (statue) is 2,870,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. O Cristo Redentor, a.k.a. Christo redemptor) (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
Christ the Redeemer weighs 163,000,000 fluid drams (ʒ). The statue overlooks the city of Rio de Janeiro from atop the 709.9-meter (2,329 ft) granite peak in the Tijuca Forest National Park.
It's about 4,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 3,790,000 times the weight of a Grain of Salt, and the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.000000264 times that amount.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.000015 fluid drams (ʒ). Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 702,000,000 fluid drams (ʒ) of salt each year.
