Use this Area and Volume of a Cube calculator by entering the side \(l\) of a cube and the corresponding unit (cm, mt, ft, etc) and the solver will compute the area and volume showing all the steps.

## How to Calculate the Area and Volume of a Cube?

In order to compute the area and the volume of a cube of side \(l\) we use the following formulas:

\[\text{Area} = 6 l^2\] \[\text{Volume} = l^3\]It is quite simple to compute the area and the volume of a cube when the side is given, by simply plugging the side \(l\) in the above formulas. For example, if the side is \(l = 3\), then we compute

\[\text{Area} = 6 l^2 = 6 \cdot 3^2 = 54 \] \[\text{Volume} = l^3 = 3^3 = 27 \]which completes the calculation of the area and volume.
