# 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;

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.
