    when searching for the width of a cube that has the same volume of a sphere, we cubic root the volume of the sphere. thus giving us the side of the cube.

    i though of this the other day, was not sure if its known to others.

    And if you want the side of a cube that gives the volume of the same cube you do the same thing. Funny how that works isn't it.

    Suppose that you want the side of a cube with the volume of a dodecahedron ? Do you take the cube root of the volume of the dodecahedron?
