A rectangular cuboid

A cuboid is a 3D shape. Cuboids have six faces, which form a convex polyhedron. Broadly, the faces of the cuboid can be any quadrilateral. More narrowly, cuboids are made from 6 rectangles, which are placed at right angles. A cuboid that uses all square faces is a cube. Properties of a Cuboid are:

  • It has 12 edges
  • It has 8 corners or vertices
  • It has 6 faces.

The basic difference between a rectangle and a cuboid is that one is a 2D shape and the other is a 3D shape.

The basic difference between a cube and cuboid is that a cube has equal length, height and breadth whereas in cuboids these three may not be the same.

Total Surface Area of Cuboid :2(l*b+b*h+h*l) Curved Surface Area of Cuboid :2*l*b(b*h+h*/l) Volume of Cuboid :L*B*H Where l= length, b= breadth, h= height.
