Kirby wrote; That's why she says "square root of 2 cubed" because the model of 3rd powering is cube shaped.   So sqr2 cubed = 2.828427125/1.060660172=3
So 2 cubed = 8 x .375 = 3
So you use a constant to arrive at cube = 3 I use a constant to also arrive at cube = 3
So 1.060660172/.375 = 2.828427125
ALL THIS IS A NONSESE, a number shuffle. Tetrahedron is NOT cube shaped yet we using thir powering. vol. of a sphere is not cube shape yet we use r cubed times Pi/4
Same IDENTICAL cubes have SAME volumes period.
