What Six Million Tons Look Like In Comparison?

Ever wonder what six million tons looks like? Well, you’re in luck because figuring out mathematical problems like this suits us well.

To do so we’ll need to compare any particular object weighing six million tons to item equal to it.

The Great Pyramid of Giza in ancient Egypt is said to weigh in close to six million tons. Approximately 2.3 million stone blocks were used to build what is known to be khufu Pyramid in Great Egypt.

Each stone block weighed nearly 2.5 tons, which almost is the weight of an average car.

In order to figure out this mathematical sequence we take 2,300,000 and multiply it by 2.5 tons, giving us an end result of approximately 6,000,000 tons, the equivalent to 130,777 Statue of Liberty which weigh 45 tons.
