# If you had a three foot by three foot by three foot cube how many gallons of water would you need to fill it?

That's 27 cf of water. And, at 7.48 gal/cf, that gives you... 201.96 gallons, or 202 gallons rounded...

### What does a 3' cube of water weigh?

Since we don't know the weight of the cube itself, we can only tell the weight of the water. Since the volume of a 3-foot cube is 27 cubic feet, we find that 27 cubic feet is equal to 202 gallons. Because one gallon of water weighs about 8.35 pounds, we multiply 202 x 8.35 for a result of 1,686.7 pounds for the water alone.

### Why doesn't a metal boat's sink?

Archimedes Principle states that the buoyant force on a submerged object is equal to the weight of the fluid that is displaced by the object. If a cubic centimeter of aluminum was suspended in a fluid such as water with a very thin and negligible thread, the metal cube would have the fluid exerting pressure on the cube. Try to imagine that if the cube were to disappear, and the fluid would magically replace the…

### Where will an ice cube melt faster in air or water and why?

It depends on the circumstances. If the volume of air and water that the cube is in contact with are constant, then it would melt faster in water because water is a better conductor of heat than air, assuming that the air and water are initially the same temperature. However, if the water volume is limited (like a glass of water), the water would quickly become colder as the ice melts, and the melting process…

### Does an ice cube melt faster in room temperature or in water?

This depends on the volume and temperature of the water. Assuming we're talking about a glass of room temperature water, the ice cube should melt more quickly if left out of the water. This is because as the cube melts, it has a greater effect on cooling the temperature of the water than it would the air in a room.

### How do you understand other dimensions apart from the usual 3 dimensions you see?

like you can draw a three dimesional repesentation of a cube on a shhet of paper so we can "draw" a three dimesional representaion of the fourth dimension .It would be a cube inside a cube with all of the corners joined by a line from exteranl surface of the inner cube to the inner corner of the external cube. This in affect is a shadow of the fourth dimesion. See "Flatland" for explaination of…

### How many metric tons are there for one cube?

It depends on what cube you are talking about. If you mean a cube of sugar then about about 4x10^-6 metric tons. A cubic metre of water is close enough to 1 metric ton. The cube from the movie 'The Cube', that angry robot cube from Star Trek or a Rubik's cube are all other cube examples that would have varying weights.
