It's about one-and-one-tenth times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 1.0 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.971 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 as long as a Bacterium
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 0.97 times the length of a Bacterium, and the length of a Bacterium is 1 times that amount.(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000170 ells in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about one-third as long as a Cell's Nucleus
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 0.32 times the length of a Cell's Nucleus, and the length of a Cell's Nucleus is 3.1 times that amount.(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000520 ells. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about one-fourth as long as a Red Blood Cell
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 0.26 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 3.8 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 one-fiftieth as wide as a Strand of Hair
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 0.0 times the width of a Strand of Hair, and the width of a Strand of Hair is 50 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 one-fiftieth as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 0.0 times the height of a sheet of Paper, and the height of a sheet of Paper is 50 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 0.0000900 ells thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about one-six-hundred-fiftieth as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 0.00000170 ells is 0.0016 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 645 times that amount.(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.00109 ells. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 13.20 ells in height.
