 It's about 2,000,000,000 times as wide as a Glucose Molecule In other words, the width of a Glucose Molecule is 0.000000000500 times 10 feet. (C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.00000000490 feet 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 1,500,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion In other words, 10 feet is 1,620,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000006170 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 1,500,000 times as long as a Bacterium In other words, the length of a Bacterium is 0.000000670 times 10 feet. (Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000660 feet in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes. It's about 500,000 times as long as a Cell's Nucleus In other words, the length of a Cell's Nucleus is 0.00000200 times 10 feet. (for animal cell)The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0000200 feet. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume. It's about 400,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell In other words, 10 feet is 410,000 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.00000240 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 30,000 times as wide as a Strand of Hair In other words, 10 feet is 31,000 times the width of a Strand of Hair, and the width of a Strand of Hair is 0.0000320 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 30,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.0000300 times 10 feet. (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 0.0003 feet thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
