Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 100,000 times as heavy as a Battery (AA).
In other words, 2.80 tons is 110,000 times the weight of a Battery (AA), and the weight of a Battery (AA) is 0.00000910 times that amount.
(Alkaline)
An "AA" size battery weighs 0.0000260 tons. 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 100,000 times as heavy as a Mouse.
In other words, 2.80 tons is 120,000 times the weight of a Mouse, and the weight of a Mouse is 0.00000830 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "House mouse", Mus musculus) (adult)
The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 0.0000230 tons. 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.
It's about one-one-hundred-fifty-thousandth as heavy as The Empire State Building.
In other words, 2.80 tons is 0.000007670 times the weight of The Empire State Building, and the weight of The Empire State Building is 130,000 times that amount.

It's about 150,000 times as heavy as a Compact disc.
In other words, the weight of a Compact disc is 0.00000590 times 2.80 tons.
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 0.0000170 tons. 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.

(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (Post 1986 weight reduction; total weight of bridge, anchorage, and approaches)
Following the completion of the 1986 project to eliminate excess material, the total weight of the Golden Gate Bridge — including its anchorages and approaches — is 887,000 tons. The two main cables in the spanning the bridge are spun out of a total of 129,000 km (80,200 mi) of wire.

In other words, the weight of an Eye (Human) is 0.00000280 times 2.80 tons.
(adult)
A fully developed eye (in a person over the age of thirteen), weighs about 0.00000780 tons. The pupil of the eye varies depending on the amount of light it is exposed to, but typically measures about 4 mm across.
