David you asking very cool questions mate! 😀 well done!
It all depends on what cells you are referring to buddy!
For example the smallest cells we know off are atom! They are about 0.1nm small, the largest well us! Above us the great whale! Check out this cool chart as a reference https://cnx.org/content/m45429/latest/Figure_03_02_02.jpg
I had no idea how big an ostrich egg was till now! HUGE! Talk about an egg sunny side up!!! O.o
Nice chart by Mia! Don’t forget davidmcafeescience, the scale in that image is logarithmic. This means that every point is ten times bigger than the one before it. So a human cell is 10-100 times bigger than a bacterial cell!
check this out to get an idea of how small they really are…
