In science:

Amazon.com does not provide any data about the variable cost of the products it sells: we therefore also need to infer these costs from our data (since the profit to a seller is determined not just by price charged and quantity sold, but also by its cost per unit).

The units are charged current events per 100 kTon of detector mass for 1 MW of beam for 107 sec of operation.
Report of the US long baseline neutrino experiment study
Even in proton-proton collisions, the extrapolation of the charged particle multiplicity per unit rapidity dNch/dy from the Tevatron (√sN N = 1.8 TeV) to the LHC (√sN N = 14 TeV) leads to results which vary by a factor 2 for models successful up to Tevatron energies .
Predictions for the LHC heavy ion programme
When a fast charged particle with initial energy E0 traverses a plasma, it loses its energy at a rate dE /dx per unit of distance, and it comes into a quasi-static equilibrium state after depositing its initial energy into the electrons and ions that make up the plasma.
