### What are Circular Mil and Barn

Definition of Circular Mil

A Circular Mil is a unit of area used primarily in the United States to define the cross-sectional size of wires. It is equivalent to the area of a circle with a diameter of one mil (one thousandth of an inch). The larger the circular mil, the thicker the wire and the greater its capacity to carry current.

Definition of Barn

A barn is a non-SI unit of area that's used in nuclear physics to quantify the cross-sectional area of nuclei and nuclear reactions. Originally coined to convey a large area for nuclear targets, one barn is equivalent to 10^-28 square meters. Despite its whimsical name, a barn is a critical unit in particle physics.
