The volume of a cube can be calculated by multiplying the length of one side (also known as the cube's edge length) by itself three times. Six faces, twelve edges and eight vertices help compensate for the three-dimensional shape of a cube.

## Formula of Volume of a Cube

The formula for the volume of a cube is:

V = s3

where:

V = volume
s = length of one side (edge length)

For example, if the length of one side of a cube is 4 inches, the volume would be:

V = 43 = 64 cubic inches.

## How to Find the Volume of a Cube?

To find the volume of a cube, you will need to know the length of one of its sides. The formula for the volume of a cube is:

Volume = side x side x side

For example, if the side length of a cube is 5 cm, the volume would be:

5 x 5 x 5 = 125 cm3

Another way to find the volume of a cube is to use the formula:

Volume = (side length)3

For example, if the side length of a cube is 4 cm, the volume would be:

43 = 64 cm3

So the volume of a cube is calculated by multiplying the length of one side by itself three times.
