10-4 A single human hair is about 0.1 (one tenth) of a millimeter wide.
0.1 millimeter = 100,000nm (100 thousand nanometers)
10-5 A red blood cell is only 10 micrometers wide.
10 micrometers = 10,000nm (10 thousand nanometers)
10-6 A lone bacteria cell is roughly 1 micrometer wide.
1 micrometer = 1,000nm (1 thousand nanometers)
A virus particle is 0.1 (one tenth) of a micrometer wide.
0.1 micrometer = 100nm (1 hundred nanometers)
The diameter of a DNA double strand is about 3 nanometers wide.
A sugar molecule is close to 1 nanometer wide.
A carbon atom is 0.1 (one tenth) of a nanometer wide.
