Becquerel (Bq)
« on: Nov 23, 2005, 12:09 »
The Becquerel is a unit used to measure a radioactivity. One Becquerel is that quantity of a radioactive material that will have 1 transformation in one second. Often radioactivity is expressed in larger units like: thousands (kBq), millions (MBq) or even billions (GBq) of a Becquerel. As a result of having one Becquerel being equal to one transformation per second, there are 3.7 x 1010 Bq in one curie.

The unit of radioactive decay equal to 1 disintegration per second. 37 billion (3.7 x 1010) becquerels = 1 curie (Ci).

3.7e10 which is nuclear shorthand for 3.7x1010
