Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 500,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of.
In other words, the height of a Human hair, Strand of is 0.00000200 times 860 nails.
(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 6,500,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.000000150 times 860 nails.
(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 0.0000002 times as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon.
In other words, 860 nails is 0.00000012784690 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 7,821,856 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 6,726,798,000 nails from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
It's about 8,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, 860 nails is 8,200,000 times the length of a Nucleus (Cellular), and the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.000000120 times that amount.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0001 nails. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 25,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.0000000400 times 860 nails.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0000350 nails in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 25,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 860 nails is 26,100,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00000003830 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 35,000,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule.
