It's about 5,000,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 40,640 shaftments is 4,950,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.0000002020 times that amount.(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0082 shaftments. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 99.10 shaftments in height.
It's about 60,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper.
It's about 65,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair.
It's about 65,000,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of.
It's about 850,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.00000000120 times 40,640 shaftments.(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 1,000,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.000000001000 times 40,640 shaftments.(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0000390 shaftments. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 3,000,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, 40,640 shaftments is 3,100,000,000 times the length of an E. coli Bacterium, and the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.000000000320 times that amount.(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0000130 shaftments in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
