if 1500 white blood cells are lined up side by side they would form a row 1.0 inch long what is the avg diameter in micrometers of one cell 1in=2.54cm
We need to find out the diameter of one cell if 1500 cells fit into 1 inch which is 2.54 cm. We do this with division.
diameter = 2.54/1500 cm
=0.001693 cm but there are 10000 micrometers in 1 cm
The average diameter is 16.93 micrometers.
