# Computation Units (CUs)

The Computation Unit (or CU) is a Network-wide constant that represents a fixed amount of computational work. The CU is the smallest unit of computation in the Arcium Network, and all types of arithmetic operations on the Arcium Network (that Computations are made up of) are measured in CUs. In particular, Computation base pricing uses CUs to set a baseline for Arx node compensation, see the Pricing section for more.
