Enter the total volume of the cube into the Edge Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Edge Length. 

Edge Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Edge Length.

EL = V^ 1/3

  • Where EL is the Edge Length
  • V is the total volume of the cube 

How to Calculate Edge Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Edge Length.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total volume of the cube. 
    • The total volume of the cube is given as: 500.
  2. Finally, calculate the Edge Length using the equation above: 

EL = V^ 1/3

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

EL = 500^(1/3) = 7.937


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total volume of the cube = 1000

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator.

EL = V^ 1/3 = ?
