Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about five times as heavy as a Battery (AA).
In other words, 115 grams is 4.80 times the weight of a Battery (AA), and the weight of a Battery (AA) is 0.210 times that amount.
(Alkaline)
An "AA" size battery weighs 24 g. AA batteries came into common use during World War II and were given their name by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 because they were smaller than the "A" size batteries which were invented first.
It's about one-fifth as heavy as a Basketball.
In other words, 115 grams is 0.184386619280 times the weight of a Basketball, and the weight of a Basketball is 5.42338703270 times that amount.
(NBA official ball standards, Size 7)
A regulation NBA basketball, manufactured by Spalding, is known as a Size 7 ball and weighs 623.68950875 g. These balls have 4,118 pebbles each with a diameter of 2.5 mm
It's about five-and-a-half times as heavy as a Mouse.
In other words, the weight of a Mouse is 0.180 times 115 grams.
(a.k.a. "House mouse", Mus musculus) (adult)
The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 12 to 30 g. 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.

In other words, the weight of a Compact disc is 0.130 times 115 grams.
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 15 g. 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-tenth as heavy as a liter of Water.
In other words, 115 grams is 0.11499680 times the weight of a liter of Water, and the weight of a liter of Water is 8.6958940 times that amount.
(fresh; 4° C / 39.2° F; maximum density)
Contrary to popular belief, 1 liter (0.0.264172052358148 gal) of water at 4° C / 39.2° F (its point of maximum density) weighs 1,000.028 grams rather than 1 kg exactly. The total volume of water on the planet Earth is about 13,590,000,000,000,000,000 (13.59 quntillion) L (3,590,000,000,000,000,000 gallons).
It's about nine-and-a-half times as heavy as a Battery (AAA).
In other words, the weight of a Battery (AAA) is 0.10 times 115 grams.
(Alkaline)
An "AAA" size battery weighs 12 g. Batteries are named by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 and AAA batteries were given their name because they were smaller than the "AA" and "A" size batteries which were invented first.
It's about one-tenth as heavy as a Human Brain.
In other words, 115 grams is 0.0852 times the weight of a Human Brain, and the weight of a Human Brain is 11.70 times that amount.
(adult)
The average weight of an adult human brain is between 1,300 and 1,400 g. In humans and primates, sight and vision utilize about 30 different parts of the brain which together account for about half of the brain's size.
