Volume = length x width x height

base is a square, so length = width = side

volume = side x side x height = side2 x height

768 = side2 x 12

side2 = 768/12 = 64

side = sqrt(64) = 8 in

I don't think you mean the volume of a square. Perhaps the volume of a prism? For prisms, Volume = Length * Width * Height, so just multiply all three numbers together. And don't forget your units: inches ^3

### Can you measure the volume of a square?

Volume of a square = length*width*height

### How do you find the cubic inches in a box that is not square?

If it is a rectangular box, then volume = length*breadth*height, where each is measured in inches. If it is a cylindrical box, then pi*radius2*height, where the radius and height are measured in inches.

### How do you work out a square prism width and height when given volume and length?

Volume = Length x Width x Height. If the prism is square, then either Height = Width or Height = Length In the first case, Volume = Length x Width2 and so Width = sqrt(Volume/Length) and Height = Width. In the second case, Volume = Length2 x Width and so Width = Volume/Length2 and Height = Length.

### What is the formula for calculating the volume of a box is?

Volume = (width x height) x length. For example take a cube with a height, width and length of six inches. First get the area of one side (6 x 6) which gives you 36 square inches. Then multiply by the length (36 x 6) which gives you 216 cubic inches and the volume of the cube.

### What is the volume of the cube in inches?

Multiply the length/depth/height and your product will be in cubic inches. That is the volume.

### How do you figure volume of a square area?

If it is a "square" area then you won't be looking for volume. However, if you are looking for the volume of a rectangular prism, it is simply: Width * Length * Height = Volume This simplifies to Length ^ 3 if you are trying to find the volume of a cube. If you are looking for the volume a square area takes depending on it's height, you can just take the area and multiply it by the height as well. (Width * Length) = Area (Width * Length) * Height = Volume Therefore: Area * Height = Volume

### Do you have to put the square or cubic sign after inches and centimeters?

You have to put the square sign when you use area and the cubic sign when you use volume. Area= Length times Width Volume= Length times Width times Height

### What is the volume of a cylinder with diameter of 10 inches and height of 12 inches?
