Q. What is the difference between a cube of side 2m and 2m^2
Hi Simrine, Thanks for your interest in maths-hub.
Your question is not clear. Assuming you want to know what is the difference of vloume and surface area for cubes with sides given.
Here is the solution
Topic : Mensuration - Cube, Cylinder, Cone
Concept: Cube of side "a" Volume = a3 and surface area = 6a2
First cube : Volume = (2m)3 and surface area = 6(2m)2
So Volume = 8m3 and Total surface area = 24m2
Second cube : Volume = (2m2)3 and surface area = 6(2m2)2
So Volume = 8m6 and Total surface area = 24m4
Difference in Volume = 8m6 - 8m3 = 8m3(m3-1)
Difference in Total Surface Area = 24m4 - 24m2 = 24m2(m2-1)
