The average colon is about 1.5 m long. Lengths of the various parts are:

* Anal canal: 5 cm

* Rectum: 12 cm

* Sigmoid colon: 40 cm

* Descending colon: 15 cm

* Transverse colon: 45 cm

* Ascending colon: 25 cm

The splenic flexure is thus at around 72 cm from the anal verge, and the hepatic flexure at around 117 cm.

The cecum and appendix are located at the inferior end of the ascending colon. The colon has different parts starting with the cecum-ascending colon-transverse colon- descending colon-sigmoid colon-rectum-anal canal-anus.

The ascending colon, the transverse colon, and the descending colon. These three parts are followed by the sigmoid colon, the rectum and the anus.

The large insestine proper is composed of the (1) cecum, (2) appendix, (3) colon, (4) rectum, and (5) anal canal. The colon proper is composed of (1) ascending colon, (2) transverse colon, (3) descending colon, and (4) sigmoid colon. It also has two flextures or bends; the right colic flexure (between the ascending colon and transverse colon) and the left colic flexure (between the transverse colon and the descending colon). drazx is the original author of this answer. by sanket gupta kv No 1 ang

Not totally but parts of it can be removed. This procedure is normally carried out if disease (notably cancer of the colon) is diagnosed.

Taking the exact word (part) which is corresponding to the Arabic word (joz'a) then it consists of 30 equal parts including 114 chapters of different lengths.

That does not matter. There are different events which consist of different lengths. You just have to place 1st in an event.
