 It's about 150,000,000 times as wide as a Glucose Molecule In other words, 23 centimeters is 150,000,000 times the width of a Glucose Molecule, and the width of a Glucose Molecule is 0.0000000067 times that amount. (C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.000000150 centimeters 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 100,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion In other words, 23 centimeters is 122,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000082 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 100,000 times as long as a Bacterium In other words, 23 centimeters is 120,000 times the length of a Bacterium, and the length of a Bacterium is 0.0000083 times that amount. (Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0002 centimeters in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes. It's about 40,000 times as long as a Cell's Nucleus In other words, 23 centimeters is 38,000 times the length of a Cell's Nucleus, and the length of a Cell's Nucleus is 0.000026 times that amount. (for animal cell)The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0006 centimeters. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume. It's about 30,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell In other words, 23 centimeters is 31,000 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.000032 times that amount. (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 2,500 times as wide as a Strand of Hair In other words, 23 centimeters is 2,300 times the width of a Strand of Hair, and the width of a Strand of Hair is 0.0004 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 2,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper In other words, 23 centimeters is 2,000 times the height of a sheet of Paper, and the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.001 times that amount. (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 0.01 centimeters thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
