It's about 600 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.0017 times 0.1770 inches.
(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 750 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.0013 times 0.1770 inches.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00024 inches. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about one-nine-hundredth as long as a Beetle (Volkswagen).
In other words, 0.1770 inches is 0.001102 times the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen), and the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen) is 907.40 times that amount.
(1964 model) (a.k.a. Volkswagen 1200, a.k.a. Käfer)
A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle measures 160.60 inches. As the longest continuously-produced automobile design — in production for 75 years between 1938 and 2003 — the Beetle was voted the most fourth-most influential car of the twentieth century by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.
It's about one-one-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as a Giraffe.
In other words, the height of a Giraffe is 1,000 times 0.1770 inches.
(Giraffa camelopardalis) (Adult, average)
An adult giraffe may grow to be up to 200 inches tall. Adult giraffes require very little sleep, averaging just 1.9 hours per day.
It's about one-two-thousandth as long as a London bus.
In other words, 0.1770 inches is 0.000536 times the length of a London bus, and the length of a London bus is 1,870 times that amount.
(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 330 inches in length. The buses were said to be well-designed for travel in the London traffic, as they offered an open door for riders to board and exit even while the bus was moving at low speeds, and a full-time conductor to collect fares.
It's about 2,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, 0.1770 inches is 2,200 times the length of an E. coli Bacterium, and the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.00045 times that amount.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0000790 inches in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 2,500 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 0.1770 inches is 2,390 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000418 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.
