A cube is hardly an irregularly shaped object. Measuring it is the defining term of area and volume.

A cube is defined as having twelve sides, all lengths uniform, all angles right angles.

If the length of any side is 'a' then

area = 6*a*a

volume = a*a*a

Unit of measure used to measure a regularly shaped solid object such as a cube?

That depends on which aspect of the cube you are measuring and the size of the cube.. If you are measuring the dimensions, you might use meters. If you are measuring the surface area, you might use square meters. If you are measuring the volume, you might use cubic meters.

What is a instrument used to measure a regular solid?

A regular (3D) solid could be a cube or cuboid, and a rigid plastic ruler (as used in a school) or tape measure could be used. A sphere could be measured by a flexible tape measure around it widest circumference, as used in tailoring. Nowadays, there are instruments that use a laser beam to measure regular and irregular 3D shapes.

How do you find the volume of a solid cubed shaped object?

-- Measure the length of any one edge. -- Multiply that number by itself. -- Multiply the result by the number again. -- The result is now the volume of the cube.

How do you Measure a cubic meter?

That is the volume of a cube with all side length of 1 meter. But a 'cubic' meter is not necessarily a 'cube' with equal edges. It can be rectangular, cylindrical, spherical, pyramid shaped, or any irregular shape. As long as it takes up exactly the same space as the 1-meter-on-each-side cube, it is a cubic meter.
