Given, volume of cube=125cc
So, side length of the cube=5 cm

The longest possible straight line distance between two corners of the cube=\(\sqrt{3}\)*measure of side of the cube=\(\sqrt{3}*5=5√3\)

Ans. (B)

Volume of cube = S^3 = 125
S = 5

The longest possible straight line distance between two corners of the cube is nothing but diagonal of the cube.

As it is a Cube, l=b=h

Diagonal of cube = √l^2+b^2+h^2
= √25+25+25
= √75
= 5√3

Hence B

Ans B
5sqrt3

The larger line will be from the bottom corner to the top corner in diagonal plane.

The bottom line will be a diagonal of the bottom square= 5sqrt2
The height = 5
Diagonal from bottom to top corner in different plane = sqrt of the sun of squares of the above two = 5sqrt3
