C Program to Calculate Volume of Cube

In this post, we will know how to calculate the volume of a cube using C Programming language.

Volume of a Cube is the total cubic units occupied by it, in a three dimensional space.

  • Volume of Cube = a x a x a = a3

We will be using the above technique in our program to compute the volume of a cube.

So, without further ado, let’s begin this tutorial.

C Program to Calculate Volume of Cube

// C Program to Calculate Volume of a Cube
#include <stdio.h>
int main(){
    int side;
    long volume;
    
    // Asking for input
    printf("Enter the side of the cube: ");
    scanf("%d", &side);
    
    // Calculating Volume 
    volume = side * side * side;
    
    // Displaying output
    printf("Volume of Cube: %ld", volume);
    return 0;
}

Output

Enter the side of the cube: 8
Volume of Cube: 512

How Does This Program Work ?

    int side;
    long volume;

In this program, we have declared one int data type variable and one long data type variable.

    // Asking for input
    printf("Enter the side of the cube: ");
    scanf("%d", &side);

Then, the user is asked to enter the side of the cube.

    // Calculating Volume 
    volume = side * side * side;

We calculate the volume using the formula, volume = a3, where a is the side of the cube.

    // Displaying output
    printf("Volume of Cube: %ld", volume);

Finally, the volume of the cube is printed on the screen using printf() function.

Conclusion

I hope after going through this post, you understand how to calculate the volume of a cube using C Programming language.
