It's about as heavy as a Compact disc
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 0.015 kilograms. 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-and-three-tenths times as heavy as a Battery (AAA)
In other words, the weight of a Battery (AAA) is 0.770 times 0.015 kilograms.
(Alkaline)
An "AAA" size battery weighs 0.012 kilograms. 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 seven-tenths as heavy as a Mouse
In other words, 0.015 kilograms is 0.710 times the weight of a Mouse, and the weight of a Mouse is 1.40 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "House mouse", Mus musculus) (adult)
The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 0.021 kilograms. 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 three-fifths as heavy as a Battery (AA)
In other words, 0.015 kilograms is 0.630 times the weight of a Battery (AA), and the weight of a Battery (AA) is 1.60 times that amount.
(Alkaline)
An "AA" size battery weighs 0.024 kilograms. 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 two times as heavy as an Eye (Human)
In other words, 0.015 kilograms is 2.10 times the weight of an Eye (Human), and the weight of an Eye (Human) is 0.480 times that amount.
(adult)
A fully developed eye (in a person over the age of thirteen), weighs about 0.0071 kilograms. The pupil of the eye varies depending on the amount of light it is exposed to, but typically measures about 4 mm across.
It's about two-fifths as heavy as a Light Bulb
In other words, 0.015 kilograms is 0.440 times the weight of a Light Bulb, and the weight of a Light Bulb is 2.30 times that amount.
(a.k.a. lamp) (for A19-size, 60w, incandescent bulb by Bulbrite; package weight)
A standard, sixty-watt light bulb weighs about 0.034 kilograms. The tightly-coiled filament inside a bulb of this size would measure about 579mm if uncoiled and stretched out.
It's about two-and-a-half times as heavy as a Quarter
In other words, 0.015 kilograms is 2.6460 times the weight of a Quarter, and the weight of a Quarter is 0.37790 times that amount.
(United States quarter-dollar coin) (a.k.a. Quarter dollar, a.k.a. America the Beautiful quarter, a.k.a. two bits)
The America the Beautiful series quarters, which began to enter circulation in 2017, weigh 0.00567 kilograms each. In answer to the common riddle, there are 119 ridges around the edge of the coin in its current design.
