Volume of a Cube
Volume of a Cube
Not too many boxes used by electricians are cubes. That is, a box where the
length of each side is the same. But the calculation to find the volume of a
cube is basic. It is no more than the value of one side times the value of
another side times the value of the last side. So if a cube box had sides of
eight inches, the volume would be 8 inches X 8 inches X 8 inches or 512 cubic
inches.
Cubic inches are needed to determine box sizing for conductors smaller than
4. So any time a box is selected to contain conductors size #6 AWG and smaller,
a cubic inch calculation may be necessary.
