# Volume of a Cube Calculator

Welcome to our Volume of a Cube Calculator page.

We explain how to find the volume of a cube and provide a quick calculator to work it out for you, step-by-step.

There is a separate calculator which will find the length of the side of a cube, if you already know the volume.

You can also take a look at our worked examples and try our practice sheets to help you master this skill.

### Volume of a Cube Examples

#### Volume of a Cube Example 1

Find the volume of the cube below. The length of each side of the cube is 17 cm.

The formula for the volume of a cube is $V = s^3, \; where \; s \; is \; the \; length \; of \; each \; side.$

So this means that $V = 17^3 = 17 \cdot 17 \cdot 17 = 4913$

This means that the volume of the cube is 4913 cm3.

You can use Calculator 1 to solve this problem.

#### Volume of a Cube Example 2

Find the volume of the cube below. The length of each side of the cube is 5 ½ in.

The formula for the volume of a cube is $V = s^3, \; where \; s \; is \; the \; length \; of \; each \; side.$

So this means that $V = (5 {1 \over 2})^3 = 5 {1 \over 2} \cdot 5 {1 \over 2} \cdot 5 {1 \over 2} = {1331 \over 8}$

This means that the volume of the cube is 166.375 in3.

You can use Calculator 1 to solve this problem.

#### Volume of a Cube Example 3

Find the volume of the cube below. The length of each side of the cube is 1.2 m.

So this means that $V = (1.2)^3 = 1.2 \cdot 5 1.2 \cdot 5 1.2 = 1.728$

This means that the volume of the cube is 1.728 m3.

You can use Calculator 1 to solve this problem.

#### Volume of a Cube Example 4

Use the volume measurement to find the length of each side of the sube below. Give your answers correct to 2 decimal places. In this example we know the volume, but we need to find the side length.

The formula for the volume of a cube is $V = s^3, \; where \; s \; is \; the \; length \; of \; each \; side.$

If we rearrange this formula to find s in terms of V: $s = \sqrt  V$

Substituting the volume value into this equation gives us:

$s = \sqrt  (2540) = 13.644...$

This means that the side length of the cube is 13.64 cm to 2 decimal places.

You can use Calculator 2 to solve this problem.
