The formula for finding the volume of a cube is V= (length of side)3. The volume is obtained by multiplying the length of the side of the cube with itself three times. The volume of a cube is the space enclosed by a cube.

A cube is a three-dimensional geometrical figure that has six faces. All six faces are squares of the same length. A cube has 12 edges and eight vertices or corners. The total surface area of a cube is obtained by using the formula A= 6(length of side)2. Volume is always expressed in cubic units such as cubic centimeters or cubic meters.
