### What are Barn and SquareDekameter

Definition of Barn

A barn is a unit of area measurement that is primarily used in nuclear physics. It represents an extremely small area of 10^-28 square meters. The term 'barn' was coined from the phrase 'as big as a barn,' humorously implying that hitting a nucleus is an easy target due to its relatively large size in the realm of subatomic particles.

Definition of SquareDekameter

A square dekameter (dam^2) is a metric unit of area equal to 100 square meters. Often used in land measurement, one square dekameter is the area of a square with sides that are each 10 meters in length. This unit provides a convenient measure for moderate-sized areas, such as residential gardens or small agricultural plots.

#### Conversion of Barn to SquareDekameter

1 b = 1e-28 dam^2
1 dam^2 = 1e28 b

Example 1:
convert 5 b to dam^2:
5 b = 5 Ã— 1e-28 dam^2 = 5e-28 dam^2

Example 2:
convert 3.5 b to dam^2:
3.5 b = 3.5 Ã— 1e-28 dam^2 = 3.5e-28 dam^2
