### What are Barn and Arpent

Definition of Barn

A barn is a unit of area used in nuclear physics to quantify the scattering or absorption cross-section of very small particles, such as atomic nuclei. One barn is equivalent to an area of 1x10^-28 square meters. Despite its small size, the barn is a significant unit in particle physics, providing insight into the likelihood of interaction between particles.

Definition of Arpent

An arpent is a historical unit of area that was commonly used in France, Louisiana, and parts of Canada. While its size varied by region, in France one arpent was generally about 4,200 square meters or 0.42 hectares. The unit was primarily used for measuring land, particularly in agriculture, before modern units of area became widespread.
