Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

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 0.0000007 times as long as I-80
In other words, 10 feet is 0.0000006571760 times the length of I-80, and the length of I-80 is 1,521,660 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Interstate 80, a.k.a. Keystone Shortway) (net length)
Interstate 80, crosses the continent of North America from Teaneck, New Jersey to San Francisco, California and covers a total length of 15,216,600 feet. A 196,850 feet stretch between mile marker 318 in Grand Island, Nebraska and mile marker 390 in Lincoln, Nebraska is the longest straight path in the US Interstate system.
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 (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 0.0000005 times as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only)
In other words, 10 feet is 0.0000004870 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 2,053,000 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 20,530,000 feet. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about 0.0000005 times as long as The Amazon River
In other words, 10 feet is 0.00000047350 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 2,112,000 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 21,120,000 feet. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about 0.0000004 times as long as The Great Wall of China (total)
In other words, 10 feet is 0.0000003440 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 2,910,000 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 29,000,000 feet. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about 0.0000003 times as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 10 feet is 0.000000238941260 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 4,185,129 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 41,851,289 feet at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 343,200 feet.
