(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
It's about 40,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 156.74 cubits is 38,100,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000000262 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 35,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.000000028 times 156.74 cubits.
