## Cube - properties, patterns

The cube is a regular polyhedron with six sides, as the name suggests, in the shape of congruent squares. This is a special case of normal prism, hypercube, cuboid and rhombohedron. It can be found in nature as a sodium chloride or pyrite crystal. What does a cube look like? What is the formula for its surface area and volume? What are the properties?

## 1. Properties of the cube

A cube (more precisely a regular hexahedron) is a regular polyhedron with six faces. Each wall has the shape of a congruent square. It has four edges, eight vertices, and twelve edges. If we cut the vertices of the cube properly, we get a semi-formic polyhedron, which we call a truncated cube.

The angle between the faces with a common edge is 90 °, and the solid angle at the vertex (triangular angle) is π / 2. The cube's symmetry group is Oₕ.

We can write a sphere into the cube or describe it on the cube.

Every cube is a cuboid, but not every cuboid is a cube.
