How long is 167 smoots?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-twenty-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only).
In other words, 167 smoots is 0.000045410 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 22,020 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 3,678 smoots. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 167 smoots is 0.000044150 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 22,650 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 3,782,000 smoots. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about one-thirty-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 167 smoots is 0.00003210 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 31,200 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 5,200,000 smoots. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-forty-five-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 167 smoots is 0.0000222792810 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 44,884.7520 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 7,495,753.30 smoots 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 61,468.6570 smoots.
It's about one-one-hundred-fifty-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 167 smoots is 0.00000709171560 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 141,009.60 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 23,548,604 smoots. 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 150,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000590 times 167 smoots.
(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 0.001 smoots 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 250,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 167 smoots is 227,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000004410 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.000735 smoots. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 8.870 smoots in height.
