ClipArt illustrations of cubes. Cubes are 3-dimensional geometric solids bounded by six equal squares, making the height, width, and length equal, and all interior angles 90 degrees. It is also called a regular hexahedron, and is one of the five Platonic solids.

"Science has succeeded in classifying the thousands of known crystals in six systems, to each of which belongs a number of forms having some property in common. In order to classify these different crystals, the existence of certain lines within the crystal, called axes, is assumed, around which the form can be symmetrically build up. These axes are assumed to intersect in the center of the crystal, and to pass through from one side to the other." — Hallock, 1905

A visual representation of cubing. "In the diagrams, Figure 1 represents 40 cubed and has a content of 64,000 cubic units; Figure 2 represents 3(40 squared x 8) and the contents of these three blocks are 38,400 cubic units; Figure 3 represents 3(40 x 8 squared) and the contents of these blocks are 7,680 cubic units; Figure 4 represents 8 cubed or 512 cubic units." -Foster, 1921
