How big is a cell?

    This question actually has many different answers as there are many types of cells. A cell, no matter what its composition, will be invisible to the human eye on its own. A skin cell is about 1/1000 the size of a grain of salt- too small for us to even really comprehend. A red blood cell is about 1/10 the size of a skin cell. Small enough that thousands of these cells could fit on the tip of a needle. So, cells are small, but vary depending on their composition.
