### What are Barn and Square Mil

Definition of Barn

A 'barn' is a unit of area used in nuclear physics to quantify the effective cross-sectional area of nuclei and nucleon scattering. Although it's a non-SI unit, it's widely accepted in the physics community. One barn equals 10^-28 square meters. The term 'barn' is whimsically derived from the phrase 'as big as a barn,' reflecting the relative ease of hitting a large target.

Definition of Square Mil

A 'square mil' is a unit of area commonly used in the United States to measure very small surfaces. One square mil is the area of a square with sides that are one mil (one thousandth of an inch) in length. It is equivalent to 6.4516 square millimeters. This unit is often used in manufacturing industries and engineering for precise measurements of small areas.

#### Conversion of Barn to Square Mil

1 b = 1.55 x 10^12 mil²
1 mil² = 6.4516 x 10^-13 b

Example 1:
convert 2 b to mil²:
2 b = 2 × 1.55 x 10^12 mil² = 3.1 x 10^12 mil²

Example 2:
convert 5 b to mil²:
5 b = 5 × 1.55 x 10^12 mil² = 7.75 x 10^12 mil²
