# Difference between cube and cuboid in detail

Learn and also know the main **difference between cube and cuboid**. As a student everyone should have minimum knowledge on **cube and cuboid differences**. If anybody asks you to tell what is the difference between cuboid and cube then you should be able to say the answer.

We know what is a cube and what is a cuboid. Now based on these two shapes i.e. cube and cuboid we will list out some important points. After reading these points we can tell easily the **difference between cube and cuboid. **Whatever the points are given below, each and every point you should go through.

**List of points that show difference between cube and cuboid shapes:**

CUBOID |
CUBE |

The measures of length, breadth and height are different i.e. l ≠ b ≠ h | The measures of length, breadth and height are equal i.e. l = b =h |

Examples: bricks, duster,… | Example: Dice, …. |

Volume = l × b × h | Volume = l^{3} |

Lateral surface area = 2h ( l + b ) | Lateral surface area = 4l^{2} |

Total surface area = 2 (lb + bh + hl) | Total surface area = 6l^{2} |

Diagonal = √l^{2 } + b^{2} + h^{2} |
Diagonal = √3 l |

Hope the above points gives you some idea about **difference between cube and cuboid**.
