In other words, 4.80 cubits is 1,100,000 times the length of an E. coli Bacterium, and the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.000000910 times that amount.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000440 cubits in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 1,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 4.80 cubits is 1,170,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000008550 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.
