Obtain the maximum kinetic energy of -particles, and the radiation frequencies of decays in the decay scheme shown.

You are given that

Solution: It can be observed from the given decay diagram that decays from the 1.088 MeV energy level to the 0 MeV energy level. 
Hence, the energy corresponding to decays is given as 
Where, 
h= Plank's constant and = frequency of radiation radiated by decay.
It can be observed the given gamma decay diagram that decays from the 0.412 MeV energy level to the 0 MeV energy level. 
Hence, the energy corresponding to decay is given as 
Where is the frequency of the radiation radiated by decay. 
It can be observed from the given gamma decay diagram that decays from the 1.088 MeV energy level to the 0.412 MeV energy level. Hence, the energy corresponding to is given as 
Where frequency of the radiation radiated by decay
Now mass of is 197.968 u and mass of = 197.9667 u
Energy of the highest level is given as :
decays from the 1.3720995 MeV level to the 1.088 MeV level
maximum kinetic energy of the particle
decays from the 1.3720995 MeV level to the 0.412 MeV level 
Maximum kinetic energy of the particle =
