## What is cuboid explain?

A cuboid is a three-dimensional shape with a length, width, and a height. The cuboid shape has six sides called faces. Each face of a cuboid is a rectangle, and all of a cuboid’s corners (called vertices) are 90-degree angles. Anything that is a box-shaped object is a cuboid.

## What is a cuboid for Class 2?

A cuboid is a three-dimensional shape which has six rectangular-shaped faces, eight vertices and 12 edges. The three dimensions of cuboid are length, breadth and height.

What is cuboid and its properties?

Properties of a Cuboid A cuboid has 6 faces, 8 vertices, and 12 edges. All the angles formed at the vertices of a cuboid are right angles. All the faces of a cuboid are rectangular in shape. Two diagonals can be drawn on each face of a cuboid. The opposite edges of a cuboid are parallel to each other.

What is the value of cuboid?

Volume of cuboid = length × breadth × height. Here, length = 14 cm, breadth = 12 cm and height = 8 cm. Volume of cuboid = 14 × 12 × 8 cubic cm. = 1344 cubic cm.

### What is the definition of cube and cuboid?

Cubes can be called special cuboids, as a cube is a 3D square-shaped figure with all sides i.e. length, breadth, and height equal to each other. The opposite edges of a cube are equal and parallel to each other. Whereas a cuboid is a 3D rectangular figure with all sides not equal to each other.

### What is a real life example of a cuboid?

Bricks. The most popular example of cuboid-shaped objects used in real life is a brick.

• Carton Boxes. Carton boxes are manufactured in a number of sizes and shapes.
• Mattresses. You can easily observe the cuboid geometric shape in real life by looking at the shape of mattresses.
• Book.
• Shoebox.
• Cabinets.
• Lunch Box.
• Match Box.
• Tissue Box.
• Microwave.
• What special features does a cuboid have?

A cuboid has 6 faces,12 edges,and 8 vertices.

• The 6 faces of a cuboid are all rectangles. The opposite faces are congruent and in parallel planes. Any two adjacent bases are in perpendicular planes.
• The 12 edges of a cuboid are in 3 groups of parallel lines. The parallel edges are equal in length. Any intersecting edges are perpendicular to each other.
• What does a cuboid look like?

A cuboid is a shape that looks similar to a box and has six flat sides. Cuboids also have only right angles, and all of the faces are rectangles.

#### What are some examples of a cuboid?

Examples of Cuboids. Cuboids are very common in our world,from boxes to buildings we see them everywhere. We can even fit them inside other cuboids!

• Square Prism. When at least two of the lengths are equal it can also be called a square prism.
• Cube. A cube is still a prism. And a cube is one of the Platonic Solids.
