“Convert 2.3*10^-2 GBq to mCi.
I got the answer 8.51E-4 Is this correct?”
It can’t be correct because the value supplied is only 2 significant figures, so the answer can’t have 3 significant figures.
The basic relationship between the curie (Ci) and the becquerel (Bq) is:
1Ci = 3.7x10^10 Bq (definition)
You should be given this fact, or you need to look it up.
Giga (G) means 10^9 and milli (m) means 10^-3 so we can express the definition as:
37GBq = 1000 mCi
One way to proceed is as follows:
Divide both sides by 37:
1GBq = (1000/37) mCi
Multiply both sides by 2.3*10^-2:
2.3*10^-2 GBq = 2.3*10^-2 * (1000/37) mCi
. . . . . . . . . . . . .= 0.62 mCi to 2 sig. figs.

2.3E-2 GBq * 27.027 mCi/GBq = 0.62162 mCi
When you get a good response,
please consider giving a best answer.
This is the only reward we get.

2.3 x 10-2 GBq = 23-2 GBq = 21 GBq
please learn correct terminology.
1 Bq = 2.703×10^(−11) Ci ≅ 27 pCi
21 GBq = 21e9 Bq
21e9 Bq x 27e-12 Ci/Bq = 567e-3 Ci = 567 mCi
