Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 800,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper.
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000001000 times 100 paces.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0001 paces thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about 0.0000002 times as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon.
In other words, 100 paces is 0.00000019821220 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 5,045,098 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 504,509,800 paces 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 10,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.0000001000 times 100 paces.
(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 15,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.0000000770 times 100 paces.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000790 paces. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 40,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, 100 paces is 38,000,000 times the length of an E. coli Bacterium, and the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.0000000260 times that amount.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000260 paces in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 40,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 100 paces is 40,500,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00000002470 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 50,000,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule.
In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.0000000000200 times 100 paces.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.00000000200 paces in its open-chain form. Glucose is the most common fuel source of energy in human biology, with 3.75 kilocalories of energy per gram.
