Unit kb
Name kilobarn
Category Area
Details A kilobarn (kb) is a unit of area used in nuclear and particle physics to express cross-sections, which is a measure of the probability of interaction between particles. It is specifically used to describe the effective target area that a particle presents in a collision.

The barn (b) is the base unit, where 1 barn is equal to 10^-28 square meters. A kilobarn (kb) is equal to 1000 barns, or 10^-25 square meters. This unit was introduced because the typical effective cross-sectional area of a nucleus is on the order of 10^-28 square meters, making it a convenient unit in this field of study.
