### What are Barn and Square centimeter

Definition of Barn

A barn is a unit of area measurement used in nuclear physics to quantify very small cross-sectional areas. One barn is equivalent to 10^-28 square meters. It is commonly used to express the cross-sectional area of atomic nuclei and particles, where typical values range from the order of a few barns down to millibarns (mb) and even smaller units.

Definition of Square centimeter

A square centimeter is a unit of area in the metric system. It represents the area of a square with sides that are exactly one centimeter in length. One square centimeter is equal to the area covered by a square with 1 cm on each side, and it is commonly used in everyday measurements for smaller surfaces, such as paper dimensions or the surface of a tablet screen.

### Barn to Square centimeter Conversion Table

Barn (b) Square Centimeter (cm²)
1 b 1.0e-24 cm²
10 b 1.0e-23 cm²
100 b 1.0e-22 cm²
1,000 b 1.0e-21 cm²
10,000 b 1.0e-20 cm²
100,000 b 1.0e-19 cm²
1,000,000 b 1.0e-18 cm²
10,000,000 b 1.0e-17 cm²
100,000,000 b 1.0e-16 cm²
1,000,000,000 b 1.0e-15 cm²

#### Conversion of Barn to Square centimeter

1 b = 1.0e-24 cm²
1 cm² = 1.0e+24 b

Example 1:
Convert 2 b to cm²:
2 b = 2 × 1.0e-24 cm² = 2.0e-24 cm²

Example 2:
Convert 5 b to cm²:
5 b = 5 × 1.0e-24 cm² = 5.0e-24 cm²
