That depends on which aspect of the cube you are measuring and the size of the cube.. If you are measuring the dimensions, you might use meters. If you are measuring the surface area, you might use square meters. If you are measuring the volume, you might use cubic meters.

### What do you use to measure the vlume of a solid?

The method for determining the volume of a solid depends on its
shape. The volume of a solid object with a regular geometric shape
(rectangular box, cube, cylinder, sphere) can be determined using
the volume formula for the shape.
Because many objects are not regularly shaped their volume
cannot be determined using a volume formula. The volume of these
objects can be found by water displacement. A volume of water
sufficient to cover the object is placed in a graduated cylinder

### How is displacement used to measure the volume of a solid object?

The first step would be to place a liquid in a container and
record the volume. Now add the solid object (normally irregularly
shaped). Ensuring that the object is completely submerged, record
the new volume. Now simply subtract the first volume from the
second to determine the volume of the object. The volume of the
object will be equal to the volume of water displaced
