Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-eighty-five-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 83,000 times 33.02 centimeters.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 2,700,000 centimeters. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 150,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.00000590 times 33.02 centimeters.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0002 centimeters in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 200,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 33.02 centimeters is 176,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000005680 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.
