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 - - click on the nuclide (U-235),

or - zoom in on the image of the Chart of Nuclides

or alternatively -

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