(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.
It's about half as heavy as a Gallon of Paint.
In other words, the weight of a Gallon of Paint is 2 times 2,250 grams.
(excluding container; average weight)

It's about two times as heavy as a liter of Water.
In other words, 2,250 grams is 2.249937 times the weight of a liter of Water, and the weight of a liter of Water is 0.4444569 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).

(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 4,989.51607 grams, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 6,803.88555 grams. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 5,000 grams will float in water.
