Cuboid is a three-dimensional shape with a length, width, and a height, it is more or less cubic in shape.


Cuboid has 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices. Any face of the cuboid is called its base. Each face of a cuboid is a rectangle, and all of a cuboid’s vertices are 90-degree angles. Thus, a cuboid has the shape of a rectangular box.

Surface area of Cuboids:

There are six faces in cuboid. All the faces are in rectangular shape. The sum of the areas of all the six surfaces is called the total surface area of the cuboid.

The four face which meet the base are called the lateral faces of a cuboid. 

Lateral Surface area of cuboid = 2h(l + b)

Total surface area of cuboid = 2(lb +bh + lh)

Here h – height ; l – length; b – breadth.

Volume of  cuboids:

Volume of cuboid = area of base x height;

where area of base = l x b, here l = length, b = breadth
