This page tries to portray how big various sizes are relative to each
other. Only the smallest sizes have been depicted. Remember: one thousand
nanometers (nm) equals one micrometer, or micron, (µm); one thousand
microns equals one millimeter (mm).
The sizes were obtained from Biology by Neil Campbell.
