Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

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 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 one-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as an Aspirin.
In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 130 times 111.8 microns.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 14,000 microns in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-five-hundredth as tall as a Golf Tee.
In other words, 111.8 microns is 0.0021 times the height of a Golf Tee, and the height of a Golf Tee is 480 times that amount.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 54,000 microns tall. The tee did not come into common use until it was promoted by professional golfers Walter Hagen and Joe Kirkwood, as part of a marketing effort by the patent-holder of the well-known, "Reddy Tee."
It's about one-three-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as a Bowling Pin.
In other words, 111.8 microns is 0.000293 times the height of a Bowling Pin, and the height of a Bowling Pin is 3,410 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling pin should be within 794 microns of 381,000 microns in height. The USBC further mandates that certified pins be made of sugar maple wood, unless otherwise approved by the organization.
It's about one-six-thousandth as long as a Woman's Footstep.
In other words, 111.8 microns is 0.00017 times the length of a Woman's Footstep, and the length of a Woman's Footstep is 5,900 times that amount.
(for healthy, middle-aged woman of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a woman's step is 660,000 microns, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 1,300,000 microns. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
It's about one-seven-thousandth as long as a Man's Footstep.
In other words, 111.8 microns is 0.00014 times the length of a Man's Footstep, and the length of a Man's Footstep is 7,100 times that amount.
(for healthy, middle-aged man of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a man's step is 790,000 microns, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 1,600,000 microns. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
