Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 0.3360 hanks is 0.0000385364470 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 25,949.460 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 8,719.0186 hanks 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 71.50 hanks.
It's about 35,000 times as long as an Aspirin
In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 0.0000290 times 0.3360 hanks.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 0.00000960 hanks in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-eighty-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth
In other words, 0.3360 hanks is 0.0000122665320 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 81,522.6340 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 27,391.6050 hanks. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 300,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness)
In other words, 0.3360 hanks is 290,000 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000340 times that amount.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.00000120 hanks in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about 400,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 0.3360 hanks is 393,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000002540 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0000008540 hanks. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 0.0103 hanks in height.
It's about one-eight-hundred-thousandth as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon
In other words, 0.3360 hanks is 0.0000012787060 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 782,040.60 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 262,765.50 hanks from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
It's about 5,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair
In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.000000200 times 0.3360 hanks.
(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.
