It's about 2,500,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.000000000420 times 2,870 smoots.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000120 smoots in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 2,500,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000000003850 times 2,870 smoots.
(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.
