I am doing a nuclear physics project for school and i cant find any diagrams which show exactly into which particles (gamma's beta's and alpha's) with how many electron volts U235 naturally decays and exactly how.
Where do i find this kind of detail?

Try - http://wwwndc.tokai-sc.jaea.go.jp/CN04/CN024.html - click on the nuclide (U-235),

or http://www.nndc.bnl.gov/nudat2/ - zoom in on the image of the Chart of Nuclides

or alternatively - http://t2.lanl.gov/data/map.html


Principal decay mode is [itex]\alpha[/itex] emission.
