Becquerel

The Becquerel is a unit used to measure a radioactivity. One Becquerel is that quantity of a radioactive material that will have 1 transformations in one second.

Dimension: T-1

1 Bq = 1 s-1

As a result of having one Becquerel being equal to one transformation per second, there are 3.7x1010 Bq in one curie.

Dimension: T-1
