A typical bacterium has a diameter of about 10-6 meters. A hydrogen atom has a diameter of about 10-10 meters. How many times smaller than a bacterium is a hydrogen atom?
Start with dividing the smaller number from the larger number.
10^-6 / 10^-10 = 10000 or 10^4
So the hydrogen atom is 10^4 times smaller than the bacterium.
