Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 3,500,000,000 times as long as a Bacterium
In other words, the length of a Bacterium is 0.000000000290 times 1,100 ropes.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.000000330 ropes in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 3,500,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 1,100 ropes is 3,570,000,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000000000280 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.
It's about 4,500,000,000,000 times as wide as a Glucose Molecule
In other words, the width of a Glucose Molecule is 0.000000000000220 times 1,100 ropes.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.000000000250 ropes 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.
