Diagonal of the cube = 10*sqrt (3)
Diameter of Sphere = 10 cm
Diagonal of the cube will cross the center of sphere and it is perpendicular on the surface of sphere.
Smallest distance is the perpendicular distance from a surface
If we subtract diameter of sphere from diagonal of cube , we will get the part of diagonal which is out of the sphere.
since it contains two sides
minimum distance = (10 sqrt(3) - 10)/2 = 5*sqrt(3) - 5
