It's about as long as a Cell's Nucleus
In other words, the length of a Cell's Nucleus is 1 times 0.0000390 shaftments.(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0000390 shaftments. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about four-fifths as long as a Red Blood Cell
In other words, 0.0000390 shaftments is 0.790 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 1.30 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 three times as long as a Bacterium
It's about three times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 0.0000390 shaftments is 3.160 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.3160 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 one-fifteenth as wide as a Strand of Hair
It's about one-fifteenth as tall as a sheet of Paper
It's about one-two-hundredth as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 0.0000390 shaftments is 0.00475 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 211 times that amount.(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0082 shaftments. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 99.10 shaftments in height.
