So we want to find What is the energy released in this particular fusion reaction involving a hydrogen? Your client, We have a duty room you claim for me. Helium tree UK? I think so. Find it. We look at the Q value, which s T changing mess multiplied by C squared. Not a stranger messes close to D Mess off the in show reaction react. It's minus T final products. So that is the mess off our hydrogen first email cell phone. Deuterium subjective by d myself. Feed him treats. There we multiply that by sea. Scrap my c square. We gonna use natural one point for my four MTV put you for convenience. Since you're working with Tommy mess units, No t mess off hydrogen, you can't dates When I was your 72 five You you mess all. Do you? Duty Room? Yes. Point your 14 Once your to you and the mess off country this tree 0.16 to 9. You putting it in tow calculator should get 5.49 And if you
