How long is 52,000 smoots?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 45,000,000,000 times as long as a Bacterium
In other words, the length of a Bacterium is 0.0000000000230 times 52,000 smoots.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000120 smoots in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 45,000,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 52,000 smoots is 47,100,000,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00000000002120 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 60,000,000,000,000 times as wide as a Glucose Molecule
In other words, 52,000 smoots is 59,000,000,000,000 times the width of a Glucose Molecule, and the width of a Glucose Molecule is 0.0000000000000170 times that amount.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.000000000880 smoots 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.
