Depending on what you want to know, I have two answers...

1. If you unwound and tied together the strands of DNA in one of your cells, it would stretch up to six feet, but they would only be 50 trillionths of an inch.

2. If you could unwrap the DNA you have in all the cells in your body, you would be able to reach the moon and back 6,000 times.

How long would the DNA from a single human cell be if it were stretched out?

If stretched out from a single cell, the DNA would be about 2-3m long. The total length of DNA present in one adult human cell is calculated by the multiplication of: (length of 1 base pair)*(number of base pair per cell) = (0.34 × 10^-9 m)(6 × 10^9) on average.
