It’s very common to hear technical descriptions that describe heavy objects in tonnage.
So how big is a ton of feathers?
Assuming that a ton of feathers has a similar density to a pillow, meaning about .02g/cm3, the volume would be around 4.5 cubic meters; that’s enough to almost fill two Bentleys.
The reality is that no one really has any idea about how much a ton is, or how big a ton of feathers is.
The point is… use images and give people concrete pictures to illustrate and convince during your presentations.
Facts are facts, but images resonate.
