Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-five-thousandth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 0.0001912 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 5,230.95 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 rises 19,354.50 cubits above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00874891 cubits and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00984252 cubits each year.
It's about one-five-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 0.000185 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 5,420 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-six-thousand-five-hundredth as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 0.0001552 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 6,444.5 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. The first manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep took 4 hours and 48 minutes in 1960. This was the only manned descent to the floor of the Trench until 2012, when director James Cameron made the trip; several other descents have been made since then.
It's about one-six-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 0.0002 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 6,700 times that amount.
(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-fifteen-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 0.000063 times the height of Olympus Mons, and the height of Olympus Mons is 16,000 times that amount.
(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.
It's about 15,000 times as wide as a Strand of Hair
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 17,000 times the width of a Strand of Hair, and the width of a Strand of Hair is 0.000059 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 20,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, 3.70 cubits is 20,000 times the height of a sheet of Paper, and the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000050 times that amount.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0002 cubits thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
