Practical Examples?

Are there practical examples of the application of cube root other than as part of a larger computation?

Re: Practical Examples?

Suppose that you know the volume of a cube-formed cistern or other, for example 6 cubic units (e.g. cubic meters or cubic feet).

If you then want to know what are the measures of this cube, i.e. what is the length of the edge of cube, then you must to take the cube root of the volume; thus the length of the edge is about 1.817 corresponding length units (e.g. meters or feet).
