Bacteria are extremely small living things.WoW Power Leveling, While we measure our own sizes in inches or centimeters, bacterial size is measured in microns. One micron is a thousandth of a millimeter: a pinhead is about a millimeter across.WoW Power Leveling, Rod-shaped bacteria are usually from two to four microns long, while rounded ones are generally one micron in diameter. Thus if you enlarged a rounded bacterium a thousand times, it would be just about the size of a pinhead.WoW Power Leveling, An adult human magnified by the same amount would be over a mile (1.6 kilometers) tall.

ˇˇˇˇEven with an ordinary microscope, you must look closely to see bacteria.WoW Gold, Using a magnification of 100 times, one finds that bacteria are barely visible as tiny rods or dots. One cannot make out anything of their structure.,Using special stains,I have in china ,you do ? one can see that some bacteria have attached to them wavy-looking "hairs" called flagella. Others have only one flagellum.WoW Gold, The flagella rotate, pushing the bacteria through the water. Many bacteria lack flagella and cannot move about by their own power, while others can glide along over surfaces by some little-understood mechanism. 

ˇˇˇˇFrom the bacterial point of view, the world is a very different place from what it is to humans. To a bacterium water is as thick as molasses is to us Bacteria are so small that they are influenced by the movements of the chemical molecules around them. Bacteria under the microscope, even those with no flagella, often bounce about in the water. This is because they collide with the water molecules and are pushed this way and that.World Of Warcraft power leveling, Molecules move so rapidly that within a tenth of a second the molecules around a bacterium have all been replaced by new ones;World Of Warcraft power leveling, even bacteria without flagella are thus constantly exposed to a changing environment
