Simple Cube Volume



A cube with a side length (S) of 2 has a volume (V) of 8.

Rectangular Prism Volume





A rectangular prism with a length (L) of 2 a width (W) of 3 and a height (W) of 4 has a volume (V) of 24.

Volume of cube formula

A cube has three equal sides (S), this means the volume can be determined by multiplying Side x Side x Side, this is the same as Side3.

If one of the sides is not the same then this is a rectangular prism. The volume of a rectangular prism can be determined by multiplying Length (L) x Width (W) x Height (H).

Cube
A cube is a three dimensional geometry with six equal square faces meeting at ninety degrees along each edge and aligned with each vertex being formed from the intersection of three squares so that a completely enclosed volume is formed
Rectangular Prism
A rectangular prism is a three dimensional geometry with six faces. Unlike a cube the edge legths of each face may be unequal but parallel. Like a cube all faces must meet along the edges and align to form a vertex from the intersection of three faces so that the prism has a completely enclosed volume.
