The volume of a cube is equal to the length of its edges cubed, and the area of a cube is equal to the length of its edges squared. The volume of a sphere is two-thirds the product of its surface area and its radius. The perimeter of a circle is equal to the circumference of the circle, which is calculated by multiplying the diameter of the circle by pi.
