(medium grain)Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 1,250 microns. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15,100,000 microns in height. It's about half as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) In other words, 794 microns is 0.470 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 2.10 times that amount.

(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 eight times as tall as a sheet of Paper In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.10 times 794 microns. (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 100 microns thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet. It's about eight times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of In other words, the height of a Human hair, Strand of is 0.130 times 794 microns.

It's about one-twentieth as long as an Aspirin In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 18 times 794 microns. (for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA) A single aspirin tablet measures 14,000 microns in diameter.

It's about one-sixty-fifth as tall as a Golf Tee In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 67 times 794 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."
