adj. [from cube.] |

- Having the form or properties of a cube.
A close vessel, containing ten

*cubical*feet of air, will not suffer a wax-candle of an ounce to burn in it above an hour before it be suffocated.*Wilkin's Math. Mag.*It is above a hundred to one, against any particular throw, that you do not cast any given set of faces with four

*cubical*dice; because there are so many several combinations of the six faces of four dice.*Bentley's Sermons.* - It is applied to numbers.
The number of four, multiplied into itself, produceth the square number of sixteen; and that again multiplied by four, produceth the

*cubick*number of sixty-four. If we should suppose a multitude actually infinite, there must be infinite roots, and square and*cubick*numbers; yet, of necessity, the root is but the fourth part of the square, and the sixteenth part of the*cubick*number.*Hale's Origin of Mankind.*The number of ten hath been as highly extolled, as containing even, odd, long and plain, quadrate and

*cubical*numbers.*Brown's Vulgar Errours, b. iv. c. 12.*
