It's about 850,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.00000120 times 0.0000000000000000550 parsecs.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0000000000000000000000650 parsecs in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 900,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 0.0000000000000000550 parsecs is 903,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000001110 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.
