Name hectobarn
Category Area
Details A hectobarn is a unit of area commonly used in nuclear and particle physics to measure cross sections of interactions between particles. It represents an area of 10^-25 square meters (m^2). The term "barn" was derived from the colloquial expression "as big as a barn," humorously referring to the relatively large cross-sections involved in nuclear interactions compared to the size of the particles. A hectobarn is equal to 100 barns, which is why it is referred to as a "hectobarn".
