A perimeter is normally defined for 2-dimensional shapes and not three dimensional ones. A cube has 12 edges. So, if the perimeter is 48 cm, each edge must be 48/12 = 4 cm. The cross section of a cube depends on the angle of the plane intersecting the cube and, if it is not perpendicular to the cube, can be triangular, parallelogram or hexagonal. Assuming the plane is at right angles to the cube, the cross section is a square with sides of 4 cm. So its area is 16 cm2

That would depend on the shape, be it cube, sphere, etc. In general, the volume of any regular solid is its cross-sectional area multiplied by its length.

Total Surface Area = 6L2. Where L = the length of one side of the cube.

The Cube has 6 surfaces to cover it, and consider each side as "a" ; therefore the formula is 6 a 2 ..

Area of 1 face: 2.0 x 2.0 cm2 = 4.0 cm2A cube has 8 equally sized faces.Hence, surface area = 4.0cm2 x 8 = 32cm2 = 0.0032m2
