# How to Calculate the Volume, Length, Width and Height of a Cuboid | Nickzom Calculator

Last Updated on February 16, 2024

The image above represents a cuboid. To calculate the volume of a cuboid requires three essential parameters which are the length, width and height of the cuboid.

The formula for computing the volume of a cuboid is:

V = lwh

Where:
V = Volume of the Cuboid
l = Length of the Cuboid
w = Width of the Cuboid
h = Height of the Cuboid

Let’s solve an example
Find the volume of a cuboid with a length of 6 cm, width of 2 cm and a height of 10 cm.

This implies that:
l = length of the cuboid = 6
w = width of the cuboid = 2
h= = height of the cuboid = 10

V = lwh
That is, V = 6 x 2 x 10
V = 120

Therefore, the volume of the cuboid is 120 cm3.

### Calculating the Length of a cuboid when Volume, Width and Height are Given

The formula is l = V / (w)(h)

Where;
V = Volume of the Cuboid
l = Length of the Cuboid
w = Width of the Cuboid
h = Height of the Cuboid

Let’s solve an example:
Find the length of a cuboid with a volume of 440 cm3 , a width of 5 cm and a height of 11 cm.

This implies that;
V = Volume of the cuboid = 440 cm3
w = width of the cuboid = 5 cm
h  = height of the cuboid = 11 cm

l =  V / (w)(h)
This means, l = 440 / (5)(11)
l = 440 / 55
l = 8 cm

Therefore, the length of the cuboid is 8 cm.

### Calculating the Width of a cuboid when Volume, Length and Height are Given

The formula is w = V / (l)(h)

Where;
V = Volume of the Cuboid
l = Length of the Cuboid
w = Width of the Cuboid
h = Height of the Cuboid

Let’s solve an example:
Find the width of a cuboid with a volume of  180 cm3 , a length of 6 cm and a height of 10 cm

This implies that;
V = Volume of the cuboid = 180 cm3
l = length of the cuboid = 6 cm
h  = height of the cuboid = 10 cm

w =  V / (l)(h)
w = 180 / (6)(10)
Then, w = 180 / 60
w = 3 cm

Therefore, the width of the cuboid is 3 cm.

### Calculating the Height of a cuboid when Volume, Length and Width are Given

The formula is h = V / (l)(w)

Where;
V = Volume of the Cuboid
l = Length of the Cuboid
w = Width of the Cuboid
h = Height of the Cuboid

Let’s solve an example:
Find the height of a cuboid with a volume of 195 cm3 , a length of 5 cm and a width of 3 cm

This implies that;
V = Volume of the cuboid = 195 cm3
l = length of the cuboid = 5 cm
w  = width of the cuboid = 3 cm

h =  V / (l)(w)
h = 195 / (5)(3)
So, h = 195 / 15
h = 13 cm

Therefore, the height of the cuboid is 13 cm.
