To help compare different orders of magnitude this page lists lengths between 10−3 m and 10−2 m (1 mm and 1 cm).

Distances shorter than 1 mm

  • 1.0 mm — 1/1000 of a metre
  • 1.0 mm — 0.03937 inches or 5/127 (exactly)
  • 1.0 mm — side of square of area 1 mm²
  • 1.0 mm — diameter of a pinhead
  • 1.5 mm — length of average flea[1]
  • 2.54 mm — distance between pins on old DIP (dual-inline-package) electronic components
  • 5 mm — length of average red ant
  • 5.56 x 45 mm NATO — standard ammunition size
