Question

The smallest "living" thing is probably a type of infectious agent known as a viroid. Viroids are plant pathogens that consist of a circular loop of single-stranded RNA, containing about 300 bases. (Think of the bases as beads strung on a circular RNA string.) The distance from one base to the next (measured along the circumference of the circular loop) is about 0.35 nm. What is the diameter of a viroid in
(a) m,
(b) μ m,
(c) in.?
