    I was wondering what a reasonable value for specific activity might be?

    I would assume it depends on the material (and including mass) in question.

    Since specific activity is Becquerel per kilogram, is Bq/kg.

    The SI unit Bq is defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one-nucleus decays per second.

    So it would be reciprocal second per kilogram, which could be incredible small to unimaginably large.

    What material and how much are you wondering about?
