# 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.

## Examples of a cube

We can find many **objects that look like a cube**, examples of cube shaped objects are: a dice, Rubik's cube, a box, or even a sugar cube. Can you think of any other examples? leave a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

## Formula for the volume of a cube

**Calculate the volume of a cube** is very simple, you only have to know the value of one edge and power it to 3, which is the same as multiplying edge x edge x edge. You can also use the online calculator to **get the cube volume automatically**.
