It's about 9,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of
In other words, 2 cubits is 9,200 times the height of a Human hair, Strand of, and the height of a Human hair, Strand of is 0.00011 times that amount.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
It's about one-nine-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 2 cubits is 0.000103 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 9,710 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. Sagarmatha, a.k.a. Mount Qomolangma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 19,400 cubits above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00875 cubits and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00984 cubits each year.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as long as Calangute Beach
In other words, the length of Calangute Beach is 10,000 times 2 cubits.
(Goa, India) (approximate)
One of the most popular tourist destinations in Goa, Calangute Beach, the "Queen of Beaches," stretches about 7 km in length.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 2 cubits is 0.000099740 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 10,030 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 20,120 cubits above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 2 cubits is 0.0000838750 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 11,923 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 23,845 cubits below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 12,000 times 2 cubits.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 24,000 cubits. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-thirty-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 29,000 times 2 cubits.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 59,000 cubits. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
