1. Kinetic energy (we use the classical formula since v is 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 3 e and 90 e , respectively. We manipulate the terms so that one of the factors of e cancels the “e” in the kinetic energy unit MeV, and the other factor of
