1. Kinetic energy (we use the classical formula since vis much less than c) is converted into potential energy (see Eq. 24-43). From Appendix F or G, we find Z= 3 for Lithium and Z= 90 for Thorium; the charges on those nuclei are therefore 3eand 90e, respectively. We manipulate the terms so that one of the factors of ecancels the “e” in the kinetic energy unit MeV, and the other factor of
