Comments "Bacteria volume and mass are more difficult to calculate and vary according to shape and size of bacteria. For example, Staphylococcus aureus has an average volume of about 1.76µm^3 (0.5–1µm cell diameter) while Mycobacterium tuberculosis has a volume of about 8.4µm^3 (2–4µm in length and 0.2–0.5µm in width)." This volume corresponds to a length of 2-4µm and a width of 0.2-0.5µm. Better reference needed
