Volume of a cube
Given the length of one side, call it a, the volume of a cube can be found by using the following formula:
V
_{cube} = a
^{3} = a × a × a
Example #1:
Find the volume if the length of one side is 2 cm
V
_{cube} = 2
^{3}
V
_{cube} = 2 × 2 × 2
V
_{cube} = 8 cm
^{3}
Example #2:
Find the volume if the length of one side is 3 cm
V
_{cube} = 3
^{3}
V
_{cube} = 3 × 3 × 3
V
_{cube} = 27 cm
^{3}
Example #3:
Find the volume if the length of one side is 3/2 cm
V
_{cube} = (3/2)
^{3}
V
_{cube} = 3/2 × 3/2 × 3/2
V
_{cube} = (3 × 3 × 3)/(2 × 2 × 2) V
_{cube} = 27/8
V
_{cube} = 3.375 cm
