Full Answer

A cuboid is box-like in structure. It is considered a prism because its cross-section along its length is identical. The volume of a cuboid is the product of the object's length, width and height, which can be expressed using the formula volume = length x width x height or in simpler notations, or v = lwh. Its surface area is given as a = 2wl + 2lh + 2hw, where "a" denotes the surface area.
