Syntax to obtain the volume of a cube in Ruby

Parameters

  • volume: This represents the volume of the cube.
  • s: This represents the length of each side of the cube.

Return value

  • The value returned is the volume of the cube.

Example

# create function to get the volume of a cube
def getVolume(lengthOfSide)
  volume = lengthOfSide * lengthOfSide * lengthOfSide

  puts "The volume of cube with length of side #{lengthOfSide} is = #{volume}"
end

# create length of sides of cubes
l1 = 23
l2 = 5
l3 = 0.5
l4 = 100

# get the volumes of the cubes
getVolume(l1)
getVolume(l2)
getVolume(l3)
getVolume(l4)
Get the volume of a cube in Ruby

Explanation

  • Line 2: We create a function called getVolume(), which takes the length of the side of a cube, calculates the volume, and prints the result to the console.
  • Lines 9–12: We provide several values for the lengths of sides of different cubes whose volume we want to get.
  • Lines 15–18: We invoke the function created to get the volume of the cubes.
