In dealing with the Ebola virus, we don’t ask how big the virus is but how small it is. The viruses are measured in nanometers which 1 nm is one billionth of a meter, which is 1/1,000,000,000. That poses the question, how many of these viruses can fit into this dot (.)? The average length of the virus is 970 nm that is 0.000000970 meter, and has a diameter of 80 nm or 0.000000080 meter.
