Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-eighty-fifth as tall as a Golf Tee.
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 83 times 625.25 microns.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 54,000 microns tall. The tee did not come into common use until it was promoted by professional golfers Walter Hagen and Joe Kirkwood, as part of a marketing effort by the patent-holder of the well-known, "Reddy Tee."
It's about 100 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.01 times 625.25 microns.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of six micrometers. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 300 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, 625.25 microns is 310 times the length of an E. coli Bacterium, and the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.0032 times that amount.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about two micrometers in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 350 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 625.25 microns is 333 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.003 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 one-six-hundredth as tall as a Bowling Pin.
In other words, 625.25 microns is 0.00164 times the height of a Bowling Pin, and the height of a Bowling Pin is 610 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling pin should be within 794 microns of 381,000 microns in height. The USBC further mandates that certified pins be made of sugar maple wood, unless otherwise approved by the organization.
It's about one-one-thousandth as long as a Woman's Footstep.
In other words, 625.25 microns is 0.00095 times the length of a Woman's Footstep, and the length of a Woman's Footstep is 1,100 times that amount.
(for healthy, middle-aged woman of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a woman's step is 660,000 microns, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 1,300,000 microns. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
It's about one-one-thousand-five-hundredth as long as a Man's Footstep.
In other words, the length of a Man's Footstep is 1,300 times 625.25 microns.
(for healthy, middle-aged man of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a man's step is 790,000 microns, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 1,600,000 microns. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
