## What is a cube?

It is a **solid** three-dimensional **figure** with **6** square **faces**. A cube is a **form** of regular **square** prism that **spreads** in 3 dimensions. In a **cube**, all sides will make an angle of **90 degrees** with each other, and a maximum of **3** faces meet at each **vertex**.

**Simply**, a cube is a regular **hexahedron** having **6 faces**, 12 edges, and **8** vertices. As it involves **three dimensions** and faces **spread** in two dimensions, that’s **why** it has both surface area and **volume**.

So, if you have a **question** regarding the **solution** of a cube, you may have to find both **parameters**. Keep reading to learn what these **parameters/measurements** are and how to get them.

### What is cube surface area?

As **mentioned,** a cube is a solid figure with **6 square** faces. So, it must **cover** a specific area of any **surface** that we call it's surface area. In **terms** of a cube, the surface area is the **region** that its solid **square-shaped** faces will cover.

### What is the formula for the surface area of a cube?

As a cube is a regular **hexahedron**, so, it will be **pretty **simple to **find** its surface area. To **calculate** this measurement, we have to multiply the **surface area** of one face by the **total **number of faces. Here is the formula to find the surface area of a **cube**:

Surface area of a cube = 6 * a^{2}square units

In the above formula, “a” represents the length of the side of one squared face.

### What is the volume of a cube?

A cube is a **3-dimensional** figure that also spreads in an **upward **direction which gives it a specific **height.** Due to this measurement’s **involvement**, a cube also has a **specific** volume. It is the **space** that this specific **geometrical** figure covers in all **three** dimensions in which it is spreading.

### What is the formula for the volume of a cube?

Till now, you must be **familiar** with the **cube dimensions** and understand that this **figure** has all sides of **equal **measures. It makes the volume of a **cube** calculation easier for every **student**. Here is the formula you have to **use** for this purpose.

Volume of a cube = a^{3}cubic units

The **alphabet **“a” in the above **formula** represents the **length** of one side of a **cube.** We can also say that if we **multiply** the length of the base of a cube by its **surface area**, we will get the **value **for its volume.

### How to find the volume and surface area of a cube?

Finding the **volume** and surface area of a cube isn’t a **hectic** and complicated **task **because you only have to use the above **formulas**. But we have still solved an example here to let you **understand** the procedure properly.

**Example 1:**

Find the surface area and volume of a cube if the length of its side is 7 m.

**Solution:**

As we know,

Surface area of a cube = 6 * a^{2}square units

So,

= 6 * (7)^{2}m^{2}

= 294 m^{2}

Similarly, we can find the volume of a cube using the following formula.

Volume of a cube = a^{3}cubic units

= (7)^{3}m^{3}

= 343 m^{3}
