Is the unit of measurement for a particle beam FLUX - the femtobarn ???


  • Science -

    No. The Barn is a unit of area of the beam.

    When you say partical beam flux, it could mean mass flux, collision occurance flux. You have to be specific.

    Normally flux is (things/(area))/time

  • Science -

    the inverse fermobarn is a measure sometimes of occurances per time

    Thanks you Bob
