What would you use to get the volume of an ice cube?

If the ice cube in question is a perfect cube (all sides are equal in length), then the volume can be calculated with the simple formula a3, where "a" is the length of one of the cube's sides, that is, simply multiply this number (a) with itself, then multiply the result by the same number (a) again (this is why the "a3" calculation is called "cubing"). However, often times not all sides of the ice cube will be the same, in which case it's not a perfect cube but some kind of a rectangular prism. In this case you want to use the formula a * b * c, where a, b and c are the lengths of each of the ice cube's sides. That is, simply multiply "a" by "b", and then multiply the result by "c". If the ice cube is NOT shaped like a rectangular prism at all but is some kind of an irregular/oval shape, the calculations get considerably more complex
