Unit cb
Name centibarn
Category Area
Details A centibarn (cb) is a unit of area used in nuclear and particle physics to express the cross-sectional area of a particle interaction, specifically in relation to scattering and absorption probabilities. The term "barn" was coined during the Manhattan Project as a unit of area for atomic nuclei, and a centibarn represents 10^{-2} times the area of a barn.

1 barn is defined as 10^{-28} square meters (m^2) or 100 square femtometers (fm^2). Therefore, 1 centibarn (cb) is equal to 10^{-30} square meters (m^2) or 1 square femtometer (fm^2).

In simple terms, a centibarn is a very small unit of area, specifically used for measuring the probability of a particle interaction occurring in nuclear and particle physics experiments. It helps describe the "target size" of the nucleus or particle when they are interacting with other particles, like in a collider experiment or a scattering experiment.
