It's about 1,500,000 times as heavy as a Dalmatian.
In other words, 40,000 tonnes is 1,360,000 times the weight of a Dalmatian, and the weight of a Dalmatian is 0.0000007350 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 0.0295 tonnes. 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.
It's about 3,000,000 times as heavy as a Gold Bar.
In other words, 40,000 tonnes is 3,215,074.6570 times the weight of a Gold Bar, and the weight of a Gold Bar is 0.0000003110347680 times that amount.(London Good Delivery bar)
A "London Good Delivery" gold bar — the variety commonly held by Central Banks — should weigh 0.01244139072 tonnes. The largest gold bar ever produced was minted by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (a sibling company of the auto manufacturer) in 2005 and weighed 0.250 tonnes.
It's about 4,000,000 times as heavy as a Dachshund.
In other words, the weight of a Dachshund is 0.000000300 times 40,000 tonnes.(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 0.009 tonnes. 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 6,000,000 times as heavy as a Bowling Ball.
In other words, 40,000 tonnes is 5,878,993.660 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 0.0000001700971390 times that amount.(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 0.00498951607 tonnes, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 0.00680388555 tonnes. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 0.005 tonnes will float in water.
It's about 8,000,000 times as heavy as a Gallon of Paint.
It's about 9,000,000 times as heavy as a Cat.
In other words, the weight of a Cat is 0.0000001000 times 40,000 tonnes.(Felis catus) (Domestic; healthy weight)
The average domestic cat should weigh between 0.005 tonnes. 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 15,000,000 times as heavy as a Brick.
In other words, the weight of a Brick is 0.0000000710 times 40,000 tonnes.(Standard, traditional face brick - 1,900 cu. cm (120 cu. in))
A standard, traditional face brick weighs an average of 0.0029 tonnes. 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.
