None intensity of radioactive source

Hi ,

I want to simulate natural radioactive decay of Cs137. I am using gps. In the example macro file, /gps/source/intensity 1 /gps/ion/55 137 etc, etc

Now what I want to know is this "intensity" ... the number should be normalized to some value, say 1 milli Curie, or something ... I want to simulate the radioactive source that I have in the laboratory, whose strength is 1 micro Curie. So, what "intensity" do I have to specify in the macro file ??

Thanks !!!
