A cube has eight corners. The corners of a cube are called vertices. The vertices are points where two adjacent sides of a cube meet.


A cube is a three dimensional box like structure with six faces. All the six faces of a cube are equal and have the same area. The area of a cube is given by 6 times the product of the lengths of its two sides. The volume of a cube is given by V= (length of side)3.

A cube has 12 edges or sides. All the edges are of the same length. This is why a cube is sometimes referred to as a square box. All its angles are right angles or 90 degrees.
