About how many times would you have to enlarge a cheek cell to make it the same diameter as a tennis ball?


Question asked by: lor_libra

Asked on: 06 Jul 2008

Let's say the width of a cheek cell is around 0.15mm.

Then all we need to do is work out what the diameter of the tennis ball is and divide the one by the other to find the magnification factor required to make a cheek cell the size of a tennis ball.

Now a tennis ball is about 6.5cm in diameter, this is 65mm. So divide this by 0.15 and we get 433. So the answer is 433.
