Calculate the amount of energy released during the a decay of Syntax error from line 1 column 49 to line 1 column 73. Unexpected '<mstyle '.

 

Atomic mass of Syntax error from line 1 column 49 to line 1 column 73. Unexpected '<mstyle '. = 238.05079 u

Atomic mass of Syntax error from line 1 column 49 to line 1 column 73. Unexpected '<mstyle '. = 234.04363 u

Atomic mass of Syntax error from line 1 column 49 to line 1 column 73. Unexpected '<mstyle '. = 4.00260 u

1u = 931.5 Me V/c2

Is this decay spontaneous? Give reason.

Expert Answer:

The amount of energy released during a decay,

Q = Syntax error from line 1 column 49 to line 1 column 73. Unexpected '<mstyle '.

Q = [238.05079 - 234.04363 - 4.00260] x 931.5 MeV

Q = 0.00456 x 931.5 = 4.25 MeV

No net energy is required for this reaction because energy is already produced by the conversion of lost mass energy. Because of this, the reaction is spontaneous.
