It's about 850,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule.
In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.00000000120 times 146.70 barleycorns.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.000000180 barleycorns in its open-chain form. Glucose is the most common fuel source of energy in human biology, with 3.75 kilocalories of energy per gram.
It's about 650,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 146.70 barleycorns is 661,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000001510 times that amount.
(Eukaryotic; average)
A mitochondrion measures between 0.75 and 3 micrometers (µm). The mitochondrion is commonly referred to as the powerhouse of the cell, responsible for the generation of ATP. The size, shape, and distribution of mitochondria varies widely, with human liver cells each having 1,000 to 2,000 mitochondria.
It's about 600,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, 146.70 barleycorns is 620,000 times the length of an E. coli Bacterium, and the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.00000160 times that amount.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00024 barleycorns in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 200,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, 146.70 barleycorns is 210,000 times the length of a Nucleus (Cellular), and the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.00000480 times that amount.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00071 barleycorns. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 150,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.00000590 times 146.70 barleycorns.
(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles) An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
It's about 15,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair.
