Let the coordinates of the cube be (a,0,0) , (-a,0,0) , (0,b,0) , (0,-b,0) , (0,0,c) , (0,0,-c)

Let the given point be P(x,y,z)

Given: Point P(x,y,z) moves such that the sum of the square of its distances from the six faces of acube is constant.

Hence, (x-a)2 + (x+a)+ (y-b)2 + (y+b)2 + (z-c)2 + (z+c)2 = K, where K is a constant.

Solving this we get

x2 + y2 + z2 = K - a2 - b2 - c2 which is the equation of a sphere with centre (0,0,0) and radius K - a2 - b2 - c2

Dear student 
Containing the square.
Let the sides of square be x=0,x=1,y=0,y=1(h,k)be any point on the locus,then
Locus x^2+y^2-x-y-7/2=0 is a circle with center (1/2,1/2),the center of square and radius is equal to 4
greater than the diagnol of the square and hence contains the square
