## Volume of a Cube and Cuboid Questions and Answers

**Example 1.
**Find the volume of a cube whose each edge is

(i) 4 cm

(ii) 6 cm

(iii) 8 cm

**Solution:**

We know the volume of the cube v=s^{3} where s is the edge length of the cube.

(i) Given edge s=4 cm

volume=4 ^{3}

=64

Hence, the volume of the cube is 64

(ii) Given,edge s=6 cm

volume=6 ^{3}

=216

Hence, the volume of the cube is 216

(iii) Given, edge s=8 cm

volume=8^{3}

=512

Hence, the volume of the cube is 512.

**Example 2. **

Find the volume of the cuboid whose dimensions are

(i) length=8 inches, breadth=5 inches, height=3 inches

(ii) length=12 inches,breadth=15inches , height=13 inches

**Solution:**

(i) Given,

The length of the cuboid=8 inches

The breadth of the cuboid=5 inches

The height of the cuboid=3 inches

we know that volume of the cuboid v=lbh

volume v=(8.5.3)in^{3}=120 in^{3}

Hence, the volume of the cuboid is 120 in^{3}.

(ii) Given,

The length of the cuboid=12 inches

The breadth of the cuboid=15 inches

The height of the cuboid=13 inches

we know that volume of the cuboid v=lbh

volume v=(12.15.13)in^{3}=2340 in^{3}

Hence, the volume of the cuboid is 2340 in^{3}.

(iii) Given,

The length of the cuboid=23 inches

The breadth of the cuboid=12 inches

The height of the cuboid=18 inches

we know that volume of the cuboid v=lbh

volume v=(23.12.18)in^{3}=4968 in^{3}

Hence, the volume of the cuboid is 4968 in^{3}.

**Example 3.**

A cube with an edge of 6 cm and a cuboid measuring 5 cm Ã— 3 cm Ã— 7 cm are kept on a table. Which shape has more volume?

**Solution:**

Given,

Edge of the cube=6 cm

The Length of the cuboid=5 cm

The breadth of the cuboid=3 cm

The height of the cuboid=7 cm

We know that volume of the cube= edge^{3}

=6^{3}

=216 cm^{3}

As we know the volume of the cuboid=lbh

=5 cm.3 cm.7 cm

=105 cm^{3}

Hence, the volume of the cube has more volume.

**Example 4.**

Harish’s shelf is 30 cm long, 40 cm wide,50 cm in height. Find the volume of the shelf?

Given,

Length of the shelf=30 cm

width of the shelf=40 cm

height of the shelf=50 cm

The volume of the shelf=l.b.h

=30 cm.40 cm.50 cm

=60,000 cm^{3}

Hence, the volume of Harish’s shelf is 60,000 cm^{3}.

**Example 5.**

Water pond is 40 meters long,15 meters in width, and 10 meters in height. Find the capacity of the water pond in cubic meters?

**Solution:**

Given,

Length of the water pond=40 meters

width of the water pond=15 meters

height of the water pond=10 meters

The capacity of the water pond=l.b.h

=40.15.10 m^{3}

=6,000 m^{3}

1000 lit=1 m^{3}

=6,000(1000)

=60,00,000 liters

Hence, the capacity of the water pond is 60,00,000 liters.

**Example 6.**

The volume of the container is 3000 m^{3}. The length and breadth of the container are 20 m and 10 m respectively. Find the height of the container?

**Solution:**

Given,

The volume of the container=3000 m^{3}

The length of the container=20 m

The breadth of the container=10 m

The height of the container=?

We know that volumr=lbh

Let the height of the container be x.

20.10.x=3000

200x=3000

x=3000/200

=15 m

Therefore, the height of the container is 15 m.

**Example 7. **

A cubical water tank can hold 512000 liters of water. Find the length of its side in meters?

**Solution:**

The volume of the water tank=512000 liters

1 m^{3}=1000 liters

The volume of the tank in m^{3}= 512000/1000

a^{3}=512

a=8

Hence, the length of the side of the water tank is 8 meters.

**Example 8.**

A metallic cube with a side of 10 cm is melted and formed into a cuboid. If the length and height of the cuboid are 15 cm and 10 cm respectively then find the breadth of the cuboid?

**Solution:**

Given,

metallic cube side=10 cm

length of the cuboid=5 cm

height of the cuboid=10 cm

The volume of cube=volume of cuboid

a^{3}=10^{3}

Volume of cube=1000

length.breadth.height=1000

5 .breadth.10 =1000

breadth=1000/50=20 m

Hence, breadth of the cuboid is 20 meters.

**Example 9.**

If the length of the side of the cube is 5 cm. Find its lateral surface area?

**Solution:**

Given,

side of the cube=5 cm

Volume of cube = side^{3} = 5^{3}

=125

The volume of the cube is 125 cubic cm.

**Example 10.**

The length, breadth, and height of a wooden box are in the ratio 6: 5 : 3. If its volume is 11250 cm^{3}, then find its dimensions?

**Solution:**

Given,

The length, breadth, height of the wooden box are in the ratio 6: 5 : 3

Volume=11250 cm^{3}

Let 6x,5x,3x be the length, breadth, and height of a wooden box.

6x.5x.3x=11250

90x^{3}=11250

x^{3}=11250/90=125

x=5 cm

length=6x=6(5)=30 cm

breadth=5x=5(5)=25 cm

height=3x=3(3)=9 cm

Hence, the length,breadth,and height of the wooden box are 30cm,25cm,9cm.

**Example 11.**

The volume of a cuboid is twice the volume of a cube. If the dimensions of the cuboid are 2 cm, 25 cm, and5 cm. the total surface area of the cube?

**Solution:**

Given,

The dimensions of the cuboid are 2cm,25 cm, and 5 cm.

The volume of the cuboid=lbh

=2.25.5

=250 cm^{3}

Also given, The volume of a cuboid is twice the volume of a cube.

The volume of cube=volume of cuboid/2

=250/2=125 cm^{3}

The volume of the cube=a^{3}

a^{3}=125

a=5

The total surface area of the cube=6a^{2}

=6(5)2

=150 cm^{2}

Hence, the total surface area of the cube is 150 cm^{2}.

**Example 12.**

If a cube and cuboid have the same area and the volume of a cube is 125 cm^{3} while that of a cuboid is 50 cm^{3}. Find the height of the cuboid?

**Â Â Â Â Â Â Â **

**Solution:**

Let each edge of a cube =a cm and length bredth and heught of a cuboid are l ,b and h cm. Acordingly Volume of cube= a^{3}=125 cm^{3}

a=5cmâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(1)

Volume of cuboid =lÃ—bÃ—h cm^{3}

l.b.h =50 cm^{3}â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(2)

Area of base of cube =a^2 cm^{2}

Area of base of cuboid =lÃ—b cm^{2}.

l.b=a^{2} , put a=5 cm from eq.(1).

l.b=(5 cm)^{2}

l.b =25 cm ^{2}â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..(3)

Divide eq.(2) by eq (3)

l.b.h/l.b =50 cm^{3}/25 cm^{2}

h = 2 cm

Hence, the height of the cuboid is 2 cm.
