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 twelve times as long as a Cell's Nucleus In other words, 0.0000980 paces is 12 times the length of a Cell's Nucleus, and the length of a Cell's Nucleus is 0.08 times that amount. (for animal cell)The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000790 paces. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume. It's about one-fifteenth as long as a Grain of Sand In other words, 0.0000980 paces is 0.060 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 16.8 times that amount.
