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?

comment Point me the primordial and intuitive concepts about this operations on physics
For an intro to EM, "Electricity and Magnetism" by Purcell is what I used. It was great.

Well, I'm a physicist and I think I understand electric charge pretty well, but that page still doesn't make sense to me. I suggest finding a better resource.

what are a, b, and c? It doesn't look like you ever defined them.
