Answer :

a) [Reaction for emitting α-particle]


2He4 = alpha particle



,


Mu = mass of Uranium


Mα = mass of α-particle


Mth = mass of Thorium


c2= (Speed of light)2 = 931.5 MeV/u




The energy released is 4.2569 MeV


b)




Mp = mass of proton=


Mn = mass of neutron=




The energy released is 23.019 MeV
