Cardon Square or 'Box' depends on the position of the pawn and the opponents King and who's turn it is. Once learnt it's easy to visualise it any time. This helps to avoid tedious calculations and the possible mistakes. If your opponent's King is outside the cardon square or box and if it is your move, the pawn can not be stopped if you push it. In this example the king is outside the box.
