Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 100 times as long as a Red Blood Cell
In other words, 0.0000007940 kilometers is 110 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.0091 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 150 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular)
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.0077 times 0.0000007940 kilometers.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000000600 kilometers. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 400 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.0025 times 0.0000007940 kilometers.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000000200 kilometers in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 400 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 0.0000007940 kilometers is 422 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00237 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.
It's about one-five-hundredth as tall as a Bowling Pin
In other words, 0.0000007940 kilometers is 0.00208 times the height of a Bowling Pin, and the height of a Bowling Pin is 481 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling pin should be within 0.0000007940 kilometers of 0.000381 kilometers in height. The USBC further mandates that certified pins be made of sugar maple wood, unless otherwise approved by the organization.
It's about one-eight-hundred-fiftieth as long as a Woman's Footstep
In other words, the length of a Woman's Footstep is 830 times 0.0000007940 kilometers.
(for healthy, middle-aged woman of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a woman's step is 0.00066 kilometers, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 0.0013 kilometers. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
It's about one-one-thousandth as long as a Man's Footstep
In other words, the length of a Man's Footstep is 1,000 times 0.0000007940 kilometers.
(for healthy, middle-aged man of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a man's step is 0.00079 kilometers, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 0.0016 kilometers. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
