A $\frac{7}{4}$ Be atom (mass $=7.0169$ amu) decays into a $\frac{7}{3}$ Li atom (mass $=7.0160$ amu) by electron capture. How much energy (in millions of electron volts, MeV) is produced by this reaction?

0.8 $\mathrm{MeV}$

the age off. The substance is calculated by using the given formula for part A. The reaction off decay off aluminum through positron emission is soon. While the reaction for Dickie off aluminum through electron capture is all social, let's market as number one on number two. The age off earth is calculated by using the given formula as shown market as number three, substituting in the values the age off. It turns out to be 1.7 in tow, 10 days to past seven years old, when aluminum was originally present.
