 It's about 600,000,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule. In other words, 473 fathoms is 580,000,000,000 times the length of a Glucose Molecule, and the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.00000000000170 times that amount. (C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.000000000820 fathoms 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 450,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion. In other words, the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000000002170 times 473 fathoms. (Eukaryotic; average)A mitochondrion measures between 0.75 and 3 micrometers (Âµm). 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 450,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium. In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.00000000230 times 473 fathoms. (Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000110 fathoms in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes. It's about 150,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular). In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.00000000710 times 473 fathoms. (for animal cell)The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000330 fathoms. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume. It's about 100,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell. In other words, 473 fathoms is 120,000,000 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.00000000830 times that amount. (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 9,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper. In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.0000001000 times 473 fathoms. (for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0000500 fathoms thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet. It's about 8,500,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair. In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.000000110 times 473 fathoms. (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.
