 It's about 35,000,000,000 times as wide as a Glucose Molecule In other words, the width of a Glucose Molecule is 0.0000000000270 times 55,000 milimeters. (C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)Am individual glucose molecule measures 1.5 nm 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 30,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion In other words, 55,000 milimeters is 29,300,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00000003410 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 30,000,000 times as long as a Bacterium In other words, 55,000 milimeters is 28,000,000 times the length of a Bacterium, and the length of a Bacterium is 0.0000000360 times that amount. (Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.002 milimeters in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes. It's about 9,000,000 times as long as a Cell's Nucleus In other words, 55,000 milimeters is 9,200,000 times the length of a Cell's Nucleus, and the length of a Cell's Nucleus is 0.000000110 times that amount. (for animal cell)The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.006 milimeters. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume. It's about 7,500,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.000000140 times 55,000 milimeters. (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 600,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.00000200 times 55,000 milimeters. (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 0.004 caliper (0.1 mm) thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet. It's about 550,000 times as wide as a Strand of Hair In other words, the width of a Strand of Hair is 0.00000180 times 55,000 milimeters. (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.
