How much does a grain of rice weigh?

A very rough approximation would be in the order of 1023 atoms, ie a 1 followed by 23 zeros, which is a very big number.

Given that there are over 10^21 atoms in a large grain of sand, weighing 0.03g there will be a lot more (maybe x10 or x100) in a grain of rice (which is much larger than a grain of sand). Note that rice is organic so will have a lot of hydrogen atoms as well as carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and many others in lesser degree.

The previously stated answer of "30,000 atoms in one grain of rice" is absurd. Either the poster is testing how long it takes for an incorrect answer to be fixed or is quite ignorant of atomic dimensions (or both!).

On average, a single grain of rice weighs about 0.02 grams.

Rice grains vary widely. Most grains weigh 20-30 mg, although experimental breeding has produced them as large as 78 mg.

put it on a weighing scale for food. it weighs about a gram.

That depend on the type of grains of rice and their average weight

A weight of 3500 grains of rice is approx. 2.224 Newtons.

A mass of 3500 grains is approx. 226.8 grams.

1023 roughly.

Thatβs misleading.. Maybe its a typo but the more reasonable answer would be 10^23. nothing visible to the human eye would have less than 10^10 atoms.
