The Surface Area of a Cube calculator computes the surface area of the cube based on the equation A = 6•s2, where s is the uniform length of the sides.          Cube - All sides
of equal length (s)

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:

• (s)  This is the length of one side of the cube.

Surface Area of a Cube (A):  The area is returned in square meters.  However, this can be automatically converted to other area units via the pull-down menu.

#### The Math / Science

Face of one side of a cube is a square of dimensions s by s.  The area of a square is:

• A = s x s = s²

There are six equal sides of a cube, so the formula of the surface area of a cube is:

SA = 6•s²
