Becquerel

The SI unit of intrinsic radioactivity in a material. One Bq measures one disintegration per second and is thus the activity of a quantity of radioactive material which averages one decay per second. (In practice, GBq or TBq are the common units.)

Becquerel

The SI unit for Activity . The Becquerel (Bq) is equivalent to 1 disintegration per second (dps) . Also see the older unit of activity, the Curie .

Becquerel (Bq) is the SI derived unit, with a special name, for radioactivity, equal to s-1. It describes a radioactivity of an amount of radionuclide decaying at the rate, on average, of one spontaneous nuclear transition per second. The unit is named after the French scientist A. H.

[Martian crater] Becquerel is a 167 km-diameter crater at 22.1°N, 352.0°E on Mars, in Arabia Terra. It is named after Antoine H. Becquerel. Photographs by the Mars Global Surveyor revealed layered sedimentary rocks in the crater. The layers appear to be only a few meters thick and show little variations in thickness. Recent studies with H...
