How To Find The Surface Area Of A Cube
Let's look at the geometric attributes of
a cube, but first please review the definition of Surface Area Of Three-Dimensional
Shapes, Powers Definition, and Right Angle.
- A cube has some unique features, all sides are equal in length.
For example, if one side (S) is three inches in length, the other
three sides, length, width, and height are also three inches in length.
- Another unique feature of a cube, all sides are perpendicular
to the side at its endpoints. This means all end-points of a Cube form a right angle.
- Special note, the side
of a cube must be greater than zero.
Surface Area Of A Cube Formula
Formula = (6 Sides To A Cube) × Area Of One Side (length × width) =
Formula = (6 Sides To A Cube) × Area Of One Side (S2) =
Formula = (6) × S2 =
Formula = 6 × S2
