**Megarad**

**Megarad (Mrd)**is a unit in the category of

*Radiation, specific energy*. Megarad (Mrd) has a dimension of L

^{2}T

^{-2}where L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit Gy by multiplying its value by a factor of 10000.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Radiation, specific energy include Gray (Gy), Kerma, Kilogray (kGy), and Rad (rd).
