Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 35,000,000 times as long as a Bacterium
In other words, 665 hands is 34,000,000 times the length of a Bacterium, and the length of a Bacterium is 0.000000029 times that amount.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.0000200 hands in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
It's about 35,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 665 hands is 35,900,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.0000000279 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 45,000,000,000 times as wide as a Glucose Molecule
In other words, 665 hands is 45,000,000,000 times the width of a Glucose Molecule, and the width of a Glucose Molecule is 0.000000000022 times that amount.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
Am individual glucose molecule measures 0.0000000150 hands 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.
