It's about 5,500,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.0000001890 times 0.310 kilograms.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.00000005850 kilograms. Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 2,730,000 kilograms of salt each year.
It's about 1,000,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed
In other words, the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.000001000 times 0.310 kilograms.
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.000000300 kilograms. The true pigment of a poppy seed is brown in color, while the characteristic bluish color is an optical illusion caused by a layer of calcium oxalate crystals refracting light rays.
It's about 500,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar

(Sesamum indicum)
A sesame seed weighs approximately 0.000003640 kilograms. The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 2,009.32 kg of sesame seeds each day.

(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.00000440 kilograms. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15.10 m (49.55 ft) in height.

In other words, 0.310 kilograms is 11,000 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.0000910 times that amount.
(long grain; 14% moisture content)
A single long grain of rice weighs an average of 0.0000290 kilograms. A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about 2,000 times as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, the weight of a Raindrop is 0.0005 times 0.310 kilograms.
(a.k.a. drop, a.k.a. droplet) (average)
The weight of a raindrop depends heavily on the type of weather, but averages about 0.0002 kilograms. The familiar teardrop shape of a raindrop is actually an optical illusion, caused by the reflection of the light and the motion of the drop.
