Rutherford (unit)

The rutherford (symbol rd) is an obsolete unit of radioactivity, defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one million nuclei decay per second. It is therefore equivalent to 1 MBq.


It was named after Ernest Rutherford, 1st Baron Rutherford of Nelson, known as the "father" of nuclear physics.
