Thank you very much for your help on both questions. I am still a little confused as to where I input the activities though. In the example you sent me to look at it lists adding the intensity of each source, whereas the source I am trying to replicate is given in terms of activities. For example say my source is just Pb-210 and Co-60, and my activites are 100 Bq and 500 Bq, just randomly. Do I do the following:

# For Pb-210
/gps/spurce/intensity 100
.
.
.

#For Co-60
/gps/source add 500
.
.
.

Or is there some transformation I must perform to go from 100 and 500 Bq into some value for intensity, like a ratio. What I mean is the intensity ofPb-210 the ratio of (100 Bq)/(100 Bq + 500 Bq).

If you could clarify this for me I'd greatly appreciate it!
