### What are Circular Mil and Square Dekameter

Definition of Circular Mil

A circular mil is a unit of area used primarily in the United States to denote wire cross-sectional area. One circular mil represents the area of a circle with a diameter of one mil (one thousandth of an inch). It's crucial for calculating the electrical resistance of wire.

Definition of Square Dekameter

A square dekameter is a metric unit of area measurement equivalent to 100 square meters. It's typically used in land measurement, representing a square with each side measuring ten meters in length.
