### What are Circular Mil and Sabin

Definition of Circular Mil

A circular mil is a unit of area, equivalent to the area of a circle with a diameter of one mil (one thousandth of an inch). It is commonly used in the electrical industry for quantifying the cross-sectional area of wires and cables, which is crucial in determining their capacity to carry an electric current.

Definition of Sabin

A Sabin is a non-metric unit of sound absorption used in acoustical engineering. One Sabin is equal to one square foot of a perfectly absorbing surface—such as an open window—which absorbs all incident sound. The term is derived from the name of Wallace Clement Sabine, a pioneer in the field of architectural acoustics.
