How long is 0.10 ropes?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 0.10 ropes is 0.0036009 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 277.710 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 27.7710 ropes tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 0.10 ropes is 0.0035 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 286 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 28.50 ropes to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 0.10 ropes is 0.00331 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 302 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 30.20 ropes tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about 350 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.0028 times 0.10 ropes.
(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 0.00028 ropes 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 one-three-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 0.10 ropes is 0.00269 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 372 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 37.20 ropes above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-five-hundredth as long as The QE2.
In other words, 0.10 ropes is 0.00207 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 483 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 48.20 ropes. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 1,570,000,000 ropes, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about 500 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 0.10 ropes is 488 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.00205 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.000205 ropes. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 2.480 ropes in height.
