It's about as heavy as a Dachshund.
(a.k.a. "Wiener dog", a.k.a. Teckel, a.k.a. Dackel, a.k.a. "hot dog dog", a.k.a. "sausage dog", a.k.a. "doxie") (FCI standard; standard size)
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for dachshunds to weigh about 0.01 tons. Despite of their small size, a 2008 survey conducted by the University of Pennsylvania named dachshunds as the most aggressive dog breed.
It's about one-and-one-third times as heavy as a Bowling Ball.
In other words, 0.01 tons is 1.333333330 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 0.7500000020 times that amount.
(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 0.0055 tons, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 0.0075 tons. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 0.00551155655 tons will float in water.
It's about three-fourths as heavy as a Gold Bar.
In other words, 0.01 tons is 0.72916666670 times the weight of a Gold Bar, and the weight of a Gold Bar is 1.3714285710 times that amount.
(London Good Delivery bar)
A "London Good Delivery" gold bar — the variety commonly held by Central Banks — should weigh 0.01371428571 tons. The largest gold bar ever produced was minted by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (a sibling company of the auto manufacturer) in 2005 and weighed 0.27557782770 tons.
It's about two times as heavy as a Gallon of Paint.
In other words, the weight of a Gallon of Paint is 0.50 times 0.01 tons.
(excluding container; average weight)
A gallon of paint weighs about 0.006 tons. Every day, 10,000,000 L (3,000,000 gal) of paint are applied in the United States.
It's about two times as heavy as a Cat.
In other words, the weight of a Cat is 0.50 times 0.01 tons.
(Felis catus) (Domestic; healthy weight)
The average domestic cat should weigh between 0.005 tons. Cats are known for their righting reflex, which allows them to land on their feet and survive falls from heights of 1 m (3 ft) up to about 21 m.
It's about three times as heavy as a Brick.
In other words, 0.01 tons is 3.10 times the weight of a Brick, and the weight of a Brick is 0.320 times that amount.
(Standard, traditional face brick - 1,900 cu. cm (120 cu. in))
A standard, traditional face brick weighs an average of 0.0032 tons. The steeple of the Church of St. Martin in Landshut, Germany is said to be the tallest brick tower in the world at a height of 130.6 m (428.5 ft) and was constructed using an estimated 650,000 bricks.
It's about three-tenths as heavy as a Dalmatian.
In other words, 0.01 tons is 0.3080 times the weight of a Dalmatian, and the weight of a Dalmatian is 3.250 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Dalmatinac, a.k.a. Carriage Dog, a.k.a. Spotted Coach Dog, a.k.a. Firehouse Dog) (FCI standard; male)
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for Dalmatians to weigh between 0.0325 tons. The association of the breed with fire departments (and similarly with Budweiser Beer and its team of Clydesdales) stems from their affinity for horses, having been used historically as carriage dogs capable of guiding horse-drawn fire engines to the sites of blazes.
