It's about 100,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper.
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.00000001000 times 400 shackles.
(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 0.00000400 shackles thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about 100,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair.
In other words, 400 shackles is 110,000,000 times the length of a Strand of Hair, and the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.00000000910 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 100,000,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of.

(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 1,500,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.000000000670 times 400 shackles.
(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 2,000,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, 400 shackles is 1,800,000,000 times the length of a Nucleus (Cellular), and the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.000000000560 times that amount.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.000000220 shackles. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 5,500,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.000000000180 times 400 shackles.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0000000730 shackles in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 6,000,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 400 shackles is 5,840,000,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000000001710 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.
