Unformatted text preview: between momentum and energy can be used. Thus K Th = p 2 Th / 2 m Th , where m Th is the mass of the thorium nucleus. We substitute p Th = p and use K = p 2 / 2 m to obtain K Th = ( m /m Th ) K . Consequently, Q = K + m m Th K = 1 + m m Th K = 1 + 4 . 00 u 234 u (4 . 196 MeV) = 4 . 27 MeV ....
