Visualising One Million
Although it is often stressed that counting to precisely a million would be an exceedingly tedious task due to the time and concentration required, there are many ways to bring the number “down to size” in approximate quantities, ignoring irregularities or packing effects.
Information: Not counting spaces, the text on 136 pages of an Encyclopædia Britannica, or 600 pages of pulp paperback fiction contains approximately one million characters.
Length: There are one million millimeters in a kilometer, and roughly a million sixteenths of an inch in a mile. A typical car tire might rotate a million times in a 1,200 mile trip, while the engine would do several times that number of revolutions.
Area: A square a thousand objects or units on a side contains a million such objects or square units, so a million holes might be found in less than three square yards of window screen, or similarly, in about one half square foot (400–500 cm2) of bed sheet cloth. A city lot 70 by 100 feet is about a million square inches.
Volume: The cube root of one million is only one hundred, so a million objects or cubic units is contained in a cube only a hundred objects or linear units on a side. A million grains of table salt or granulated sugar occupies only about 64 ml, slightly over a quarter of a cup, the volume of a cube one hundred grains on a side. One million cubic inches would be the volume of a small room only 8.5 foot by 8.5 foot by 8 foot high.
Weight: A million 80 milligram honeybees would weigh the same as an 80 kg person.
Landscape: A pyramidal shaped hill 600 feet wide at the base and 100 feet high would weigh about a million tons.
Computer: A display resolution of 1,280 by 800 pixels contains 1,024,000 pixels
