Concept# Cuboid

Summary

In geometry, a cuboid is a hexahedron, a six-faced solid. Its faces are quadrilaterals. Cuboid means "like a cube". A cuboid is like a cube in the sense that by adjusting the lengths of the edges or the angles between faces a cuboid can be transformed into a cube. In mathematical language a cuboid is a convex polyhedron whose polyhedral graph is the same as that of a cube.
A special case of a cuboid is a rectangular cuboid, with six rectangles as faces. Its adjacent faces meet at right angles. A special case of a rectangular cuboid is a cube, with six square faces meeting at right angles.
General cuboids
By Euler's formula the numbers of faces F, of vertices V, and of edges E of any convex polyhedron are related by the formula F + V = E + 2. In the case of a cuboid this gives 6 + 8 = 12 + 2; that is, like a cube, a cuboid has six faces, eight vertices, and twelve edges.
Along with the rectangular cuboids, any para
