Surface area of a cube is the number of square units that will exactly cover the surface of a cube. The total surface area of a cube is the sum of the areas of its surfaces. Cube is the special case of the cuboid whose faces are square of the same size and whose length, width and height are equal. The surface area of a cube is six times the surface area of one side of the cube. It unit of measurement is 'square units'.


The surface area of a cube is six times the surface area of one side of the cube. Find the surface area of one side of a cube and multiply by six. It unit of measurement is m2, cm2, inches2 etc.

Formulas:

Surface Area of a Cube = 6S2


Lateral Surface Area of a Cube = 4S2

Where 's' is the length of any edge of the cube.
