# Which of the following are possible cross sections of a cube?

Space and Astronomy**Cross Sections of a Cube**

- a single point (a vertex of the cube)
- a line segment (an edge of the cube)
- a triangle (if three adjacent faces of the cube are intersected)
- a parallelogram (if two pairs of opposite faces are intersected – this includes a rhombus or rectangle)
- a trapezium (if two pairs of.

## What are the cross sections for a cube?

Cross section of a cube is **a square**. Since a cube has its faces shaped in square and all the edges of the cube are equal in length. Therefore, when we cut the cube by a plane, we get a square shape.

## Can a cross section of a cube be a hexagon?

A cube intersected by a plane perpendicular to its diagonal can be cut in half. **We get a section that is a regular hexagon**. This polyhedron has very interesting properties.

## Which shape is not a possible cross section of a cube?

octagonal

It is not possible to create an **octagonal** cross section of a cube.

## Is a cube a 3D hexagon?

**3D objects include sphere, cube, cuboid, pyramid, cone, prism, cylinder.**

## Is cube a prism?

**Both cube and cuboid are prisms**. A cube has 6 faces which are identical squares whereas a rectangular prism has 6 faces in which all the faces are rectangles. The opposite faces in a rectangular prism are identical.

## Is a cube square?

**A cube is a three-dimensional form of square** and all the faces of a cube are square. Whereas, a cuboid is a three-dimensional form of rectangle and all the faces are rectangles.

## How many corners cube have?

The cube is the only regular hexahedron and is one of the five Platonic solids. It has 6 faces, 12 edges, and **8 vertices**. The cube is also a square parallelepiped, an equilateral cuboid and a right rhombohedron.

## How many faces vertices and edges does a cube have?

1: A cube has **6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices**.

## What is Edge of cube?

Answer: The edge of a cube is **the line segment joining the two vertices**. There are a total of 12 edges in a cube.
