Cell size and scaleon January 15, 2012 at 5:05 pm
Have you ever wondered how big are cells compared with other objects, molecules and atoms? Well, the University of Utah brings an interactive visual scale where you can see the different sizes of cells among other items! The scale starts with stuff that are visible to the naked eye for example, Times New Roman calligraphy with 12 point font, a coffee bean (12x8mm), grain of rice (8×2.5mm), sesame seed, grain of salt, and then a carbon atom. To see this you have to use an interactive scale, all you have to do is slide the grey button across the sliding bar and the image above will zoom in until you reach the tiniest representation on it, the carbon atom! Well, you have to see this and share with your friends or with your kids! Check this out!
