Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 1,500,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of.
In other words, the height of a Human hair, Strand of is 0.00000067 times 962.8 shaftments.
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 0.0000004 times as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon.
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 0.0000003816774 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 2,620,014 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 2,522,549,000 shaftments 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 20,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.00000005 times 962.8 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 25,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.000000042 times 962.8 shaftments.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.000039 shaftments. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 75,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.000000014 times 962.8 shaftments.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.000013 shaftments in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 80,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 78,000,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000000128 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 100,000,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule.
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 98,000,000,000 times the length of a Glucose Molecule, and the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.00000000001 times that amount.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.0000000098 shaftments 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.
