The model provided by Newton's Laws is more than adequate for your 10
cm cube. While there has been much discussion about the concept of
quantization of space-time, on the scale at which you are operating
the distinction between this and a model based on a smoothly
continuous space-time is far too small to measure.
The Planck length (proposed by some as the "quantum" of distance) is
