Cross section of scattering measures the probability that an event occurs, given by,

             Cross section of scattering --------------------------------------------- [4477]

where N -- Events per volume (sites/cm3)
           ni -- Number incident particles per unit area (particles/cm2)
           nt -- Number target sites per volume (sites/cm3)

Q has units of cm2 and is considered as an effective ‘size’ which the atom presents as a target to incident particles.
