What are Barn and Square Mile

Definition of Barn

A barn is a unit of area measurement commonly used in nuclear physics to quantify the cross-sectional area of nuclei and nuclear reactions. Precisely, one barn equals 10^-28 square meters. This metaphorical term suggests a large area, with the irony lying in that nuclear reactions occur at a scale where even a barn-size area is considered huge.

Definition of Square Mile

A square mile is a unit of area measurement in the Imperial and U.S. customary systems. One square mile is defined as the area of a square with sides that are one mile long, which is equivalent to 640 acres, or approximately 2.59 square kilometers. It is commonly used for land area measurements in agriculture and forestry, as well as in urban planning and mapping.

100 b 3.861 x 10^-32 mi²
1,000 b 3.861 x 10^-31 mi²
10,000 b 3.861 x 10^-30 mi²
100,000 b 3.861 x 10^-29 mi²
1,000,000 b 3.861 x 10^-28 mi²
10,000,000 b 3.861 x 10^-27 mi²
100,000,000 b 3.861 x 10^-26 mi²
1,000,000,000 b 3.861 x 10^-25 mi²

Conversion of Barn to Square Mile

1 b = 3.861 x 10^-34 mi²

Example 1:
Convert 5 b to mi²:
5 b = 5 x 3.861 x 10^-34 mi² = 1.9305 x 10^-33 mi²

Example 2:
Convert 250 b to mi²:
250 b = 250 x 3.861 x 10^-34 mi² = 9.6525 x 10^-32 mi²

History of Barn and Square Mile

The Barn to Square Mile Converter is a novel tool that traces its conceptual origin to the field of nuclear physics. It facilitates the conversion of 'barns', a unit representing a minuscule area at the atomic scale, to 'square miles', a much larger and more familiar unit of land area measurement. This conversion is not commonly encountered in everyday scenarios, but it provides a unique bridge between two vastly different scales of measurement.
