Structure of a Cube

cube surface area & volume calculator
SidesA cube has 6 sides or faces which are all squares
EdgeA cube has 12 equal length edges.
VertexA cube has 8 vertices or points where 3 edges meet.
Face Diagonal Each face of a cube has two diagonals. Thus, a cube has a total of 12 face diagonals.
Space DiagonalSpace diagonals are line segments linking the opposite corners of a cube. A cube has 4 space diagonals.

Cube Surface Area Formula

The surface area of a cube is the sum of areas of all the faces of the cube, that covers it. The formula for the surface area of a cube is equal to six times of square of the length of the sides of the cube.

Surface area of cube= 6s2 Square Unit where s represents a side of the cube

Cube Volume Formula

A cube has all edges the same length. Therefore, the volume of a cube is determined by multiplying the length of any edge three times i.e SxSxS where s is the length of the edge. Or as a formula: volume = S3

Cube Face Diagonal Formula

The line segments linking the opposite corners of a faceis called face diagonals. There are 12 face diagonals in a cube.The length of the face diagonals is given by the formula face diagonal=√2S2

Cube Surface Diagonal Formula

The line segments linking the opposite corners of a cube,passing through its interior. A cube has 4 space diagonals. The formula for length space diagonal=√3S2 where s is the length of one side (edge).
