### What are Barn and Sabin

Definition of Barn

A barn is a unit of area measurement used in nuclear physics to quantify the effective cross-sectional area of nuclei and nuclear reactions. Precisely, one barn equals 10^-28 square meters. While the term 'barn' may seem colloquial, it is widely used in the field of particle physics when describing scattering or absorption probabilities.

Definition of Sabin

Sabin is a non-metric unit of sound absorption used in acoustical engineering. One sabin is equal to one square foot of a perfectly absorbent surface—such as an open window—which absorbs all incident sound. The term is named after the American physicist Wallace Clement Sabine, who is credited with founding the field of architectural acoustics.

#### Conversion of Barn to Sabin

1 b = 1.07639e-28 ft²
1 ft² = 9.2903e+27 b

Example 1:
Convert 2 b to ft²:
2 b = 2 × 1.07639e-28 ft² = 2.15278e-28 ft²

Example 2:
Convert 5 b to ft²:
5 b = 5 × 1.07639e-28 ft² = 5.38195e-28 ft²

### History of Barn and Sabin

The Barn to Sabin Converter traces its origins to the fields of nuclear physics and acoustical engineering. The barn, a unit used to measure the cross-sectional area of atomic nuclei, and the sabin, named after Wallace Clement Sabine, used for sound absorption, are both specialized units of measure. Their conversion facilitates interdisciplinary understanding and application.
