##### Reference no: EM13308111

30.09 The isotope 204 Pb decays via alpha decay. The measured atomic mass of 204 Pb is 203.97304 u , and the daughter nucleus atomic mass is 199.96833 u .

a. Identify the daughter nucleus by nucleon number.

b. Calculate the kinetic energy of the alpha particle if we can ignore the recoil of the daughter nucleus. (in MeV)
