The relationship is the smallest unit of measure: the subject being measured.

Grain is the smallest quantity possible of sand "A grain of sand".

A chip of broken glass is the smallest quantity possible.

A shred of wood is not the smallest possible quantity, you can have wood chips.

You can have less than a blade of grass eg. Half a blade of grass. Also not the smallest quantity possible.
