(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.

The Grand Canyon has a total length of 2,220 furlongs along the course of the Colorado River at its bottom. Having opened in early 2007, the Grand Canyon Skywalk allows tourists to stand on a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway 5.470 furlongs above the floor of Granite Gorge.
It's about 300,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.00000330 times 0.0089 furlongs.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0000000300 furlongs. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
