@cardinal I hadn't thought of it that way, but it's a good point and looks right to me, thanks.

@FlybyNight $n$ is a random variable whose distribution is determined from $p$ and $t$. I believe you do have enough information.

comment Can there be a cubical bubble?
@Rahul Ah, now I see. What I meant is that the performer made a roughly cubical compartment, but it is not perfect. I wanted to know if a perfect cube was mathematically possible, or whether, for example, the corners would always be a little rounded off.

comment Can there be a cubical bubble?
@Rahul Yup, that's what I wanted to know. I just don't really understand how your comment addressed the question. I think there is something about it I'm missing. (I'm not a mathematician.) Will Jagy's answer was pretty much what I wanted.

@Rahul I don't understand, sorry. How does this address whether or not there can be a cubical bubble?
