U+00B3 was added to Unicode in version 1.1 (1993). It belongs to the block Latin-1 Supplement in the Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Other Number and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script. The codepoint has the Digit value 3. The character is also known as cubed.

The glyph is a Super composition of the glyphs 3. It has a Ambiguous East Asian Width. In bidirectional context it acts as European Number and is not mirrored. In text U+00B3 behaves as Ambiguous regarding line breaks. It has type Other for sentence and Other for word breaks. The Grapheme Cluster Break is Any.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

In arithmetic and algebra, the cube of a number n is its third power: the result of the number multiplied by itself twice:

n3 = n × n × n.

It is also the number multiplied by its square:

n3 = n × n2.

This is also the volume formula for a geometric cube with sides of length n, giving rise to the name. The inverse operation of finding a number whose cube is n is called extracting the cube root of n. It determines the side of the cube of a given volume. It is also n raised to the one-third power.

Both cube and cube root are odd functions:

(−n)3 = −(n3).

The cube of a number or any other mathematical expression is denoted by a superscript 3, for example 23 = 8 or (x + 1)3.
