Even though 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 printed on 136 pages of an
Encyclopædia Britannica , or 600 pages ofpulp paperback fiction contains approximately one million characters. - Length: There are one million
millimeters in akilometer , and roughly a million sixteenths of aninch in amile . A typicalcar tire might rotate a million times in a 1,200-mile (1,900 km) trip, while the engine would do several times that number ofrevolutions . - Fingers: If the
width of a human finger is 2.2 cm (^{7}⁄_{8}in), then a million fingers lined up would cover a distance of 22 km (14 mi). If a person walks at a speed of 4 km/h (2.5 mph), it would take them approximately five and a half hours to reach the end of the fingers. - 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 cm
^{2}) 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 one hundred, so a million objects or cubic units is contained in a cube a hundred objects or linear units on a side. A million grains of
table salt or granulatedsugar occupies about 64 ml (2.3 imp fl oz; 2.2 US fl oz), the volume of a cube one hundred grains on a side. One million cubic inches would be the volume of a small room 8^{1}⁄_{3}feet long by 8^{1}⁄_{3}feet wide by 8^{1}⁄_{3}feet high. - Mass: A million cubic millimeters (small droplets) of water would have a volume of one
litre and a mass of onekilogram . A million millilitres orcubic centimetres (onecubic metre ) of water has a mass of a milliongrams or onetonne . - Weight: A million 80-milligram (1.2 gr)
honey bees would weigh the same as an 80 kg (180 lb) person. - Landscape: A
pyramidal hill 600 feet (180 m) wide at the base and 100 feet (30 m) high would weigh about a million tons. - Computer: A
display resolution of 1,280 by 800pixels contains 1,024,000 pixels. - Money: A
USD bill of any denomination weighs 1 gram (0.035 oz). There are 454 grams in a pound. One million USD bills would weigh 2,204.62 pounds (1,000.00 kg), or just over 1 ton. - Time: A million
seconds , 1 megasecond, is 11.57days .
