Examples of Becquerel in a sentence
The nonfixed contamination plus the fixed contamination on the inaccessible surface averaged over 300 cm², or the area of the surface if less than 300 cm², does not exceed 4 E+04 becquerel per cm² (1 μCi/cm²) for beta and gamma and low toxicity alpha emitters, or 4 E+03 Becquerel per cm² (0.1 μCi/cm²) for all other alpha emitters.
One Becquerel is equal to one disintegration or transformation per second.
One Becquerel (Bq) = 1 disintegration or transformation per second.
One Curie (Ci) = 3.7 x 1010 disintegrations or transformations per second = 3.7 x 1010 Becquerel (Bq) = 2.22 x 1012 disintegrations or transformations per minute.
For purposes of this Chapter, activity is expressed in the SI unit of Becquerel (Bq) or in the special unit of Curie (Ci), or their multiples, or disintegrations or transformations per unit of time.
