### How do you find the direct proportion between volume and surface area of a cube?

To tackle this you first need to know the equations for both
volume and surface area. The surface area of a cube is 6x2 where x
is the side length. The volume of the cube is x3. Thus x is the
cube root of the volume. We can substitute this in to the surface
area equation and say that the surface area of a cube is
6volume2/3
This can also be rearranged to say that the volume of the cube
is (the...

### How does the surface area-to-volume ratio of a 1-mm cube compare to the surface area-to-volume ratio of a 3-mm cube?

Volume to surface area follows the cube-square law. For a cube
with side length a, the surface area is 6*a^2 and the volume is a^3
(or a-cubed, from the name of the shape).
So a 1mm cube has a surface area of 6*1^2 = 6 sq. mm and a
volume of 1^3 = 1 cu. mm.
A 3mm cube has a surface area of 6*3^2 = 6*9 = 54 sq. mm and a
volume of 3^3 = 27 cu. mm.
So as...

### How do I calculate the surface-area- to-volume ratio for a square or cube cell that is 3 mm each side?

The answer to your question is below along with a general
formula so you can see where the answer comes from.
The formula for the volume of a cube with side length L is L3
The formula for the surface area comes from finding the area of one
side of the cube and multiplying that by 6 since there are 6 sides.
The area of one side is L2 so
the surface area is 6L2 .
