Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 75,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule.
In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.000013 times 111.8 microns.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.0015 microns 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.
It's about 60 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 111.8 microns is 59.5 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0168 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 55 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.018 times 111.8 microns.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about two micrometers in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about nineteen times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.053 times 111.8 microns.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of six micrometers. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about fifteen times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.067 times 111.8 microns.
(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 one-and-one-tenth times as long as a Strand of Hair.
In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.91 times 111.8 microns.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
It's about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of.
In other words, the height of a Human hair, Strand of is 0.91 times 111.8 microns.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
