### What are Circular Mil and Square Rod

Definition of Circular Mil

A circular mil is a unit of area used primarily in the United States to denote the cross-sectional area of a circular wire or cable. One circular mil is the area of a circle with a diameter of one mil (one thousandth of an inch). It provides a convenient measure for electrical wire sizing and remains a standard in electrical calculations.

Definition of Square Rod

A square rod is a unit of area, often used in U.S. land measurements. It is equivalent to the area enclosed by a square with each side measuring 16.5 feet, or one quarter of a square chain. Historically, it was commonly used in agriculture for measuring small plots of land. One square rod equals 272.25 square feet or 25.2929 square meters.
