In other words, 619 centimeters per minute is 0.0000011 times the speed of a bolt of Lightning, and the speed of a bolt of Lightning is 910,000 times that amount.
(atmospheric electrical discharge)
A bolt of lightning can travel at up to 580,000,000 centimeters per minute when arcing from the atmosphere to the Earth. An estimated 280 million lightning strikes strikes occur each year.
It's about 2,500,000 times as fast as Grass growing
In other words, 619 centimeters per minute is 2,600,000 times the speed of Grass growing, and the speed of Grass growing is 0.00000038 times that amount.
(for Kentucky Bluegrass, Poa pratensis) (a.k.a. Smooth Meadow grass, a.k.a. Common Meadow grass) (Summer months, ideal growing conditions)
Kentucky Bluegrass, one of the most common grasses in North America, grows about 0.00025 centimeters per minute in the summer months under ideal conditions. When left un-mowed, Kentucky Bluegrass grows to heights of 60 to 90 cm (2 to 3 ft) and blossoms with a blue flower.
It's about 0.0000000004 times as fast as The Speed of Light
In other words, 619 centimeters per minute is 0.00000000034412695821345 times the speed of The Speed of Light, and the speed of The Speed of Light is 2,905,904,277.8617 times that amount.
(C) (in a vacuum)
The speed of light (and all other electromagnetic radiation) in a perfect vacuum is known as "c" and measures 1,798,754,747,996.40 centimeters per minute, per the formal definition of the meter. While visible light travels close to this speed in air, it slows to 1,199,169,832,017.60 centimeters per minute when passing through the glass of a typical window.
