 It's about 65,000,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.0000000000150 times 100 meters. (C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.00000000150 meters 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 55,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion In other words, 100 meters is 53,200,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00000001880 times that amount. (Eukaryotic; average)A mitochondrion measures between 0.75 and 3 micrometers (Âµm). 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 50,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.0000000200 times 100 meters. (Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000200 meters in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes. It's about 15,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular) In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.0000000590 times 100 meters. (for animal cell)The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000600 meters. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume. It's about 15,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.0000000770 times 100 meters. (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 1,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.000001000 times 100 meters. (average)A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years. It's about 1,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000001000 times 100 meters. (for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0001 meters thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
