Fact sheet: Orders of magnitude in lengths (Wikipedia article)

Posted on August 23, 2010 by


Well organized tables showing how large and small numbers are used.

Table showing how nanometer, millimeter, killometer, etc. relate to each other and to real physical objects.

Good for getting a feel for how the numbers are used and for making these small and large sizes comprehensible.
