Faces, Vertices and Edges in a Cube

Faces, Vertices and Edges in a Cube

Cubes are solid three-dimensional figures that have 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices. The faces of the cubes are square and meet four other faces at right angles. The cube is the only regular hexahedron, that is, with six equal faces. Furthermore, the cube is also...
Diagonal of a Cube – Formulas and Examples

Diagonal of a Cube – Formulas and Examples

The length of the internal diagonal of a cube can be calculated using the Pythagorean theorem. Through two steps, we can find a formula for the diagonal of cubes. The first step requires us to calculate the diagonal of one of the faces of the cube using the lengths of...
Perimeter of a Cube – Formulas and Examples

Perimeter of a Cube – Formulas and Examples

Finding the perimeter of a cube may seem a bit difficult since perimeters are generally associated with two-dimensional figures and a cube is a three-dimensional object. However, a cube can be considered as a collection of two-dimensional objects since each of its six...
Surface Area of a Cube – Formulas and Examples

Surface Area of a Cube – Formulas and Examples

The surface area of a cube is equal to the sum of the areas of all the faces of the cube. We know that in a cube all the faces are equal, that is, they have the same area. Therefore, we can calculate its surface area by multiplying the area of one of its faces by six....

Parts of a Cube with Diagrams

The most important parts of cubes are the faces, vertices, and edges. A cube is defined as a three-dimensional figure with 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices. One of the main characteristics of cubes is that all their parts are equal to each other, that is, the 6 faces...
