Volume of a Cube
Volume calculator for a cube
Description, how many faces, edges and vertices are there in a cube
The cube or hexahedron (hexa = six and hedron = faces) is a polyhedron because all of its faces are flat. Has 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices. Each face has 4 edges, the opposite faces are parallel, the intersecting faces form 90 degree angles and at each vertex 3 edges meet.
The cube is also considered a prism, but with all of its faces congruent or with all its lengths equal.
