Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.0000006 times as long as The Amazon River
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.00000054370 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 1,839,000 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 6,437,000 meters. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about 2,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 3.50 meters is 1,860,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000005380 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 0.0000004 times as long as The Great Wall of China (total)
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.0000003950 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 2,530,000 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 8,850,000 meters. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about 0.0000003 times as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.000000274374810 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 3,644,649.40 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 12,756,273 m at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 104,607.360 meters.
It's about 0.00000009 times as long as The Circumfrence of Earth
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.0000000873362140 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 11,450,004 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 40,075,014 m. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 0.000000009 times as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.0000000091042340 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 109,839,000 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 384,436,500 meters 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 2,500,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule
In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.000000000430 times 3.50 meters.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.00000000150 meters 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.
