if lithium 7 3 captures proton, it is divided into two alpha particles. Calculate the kinetic energy of the alpha particles. the proton energy can be neglected and the mass of the nucleus of Li is 7,01601u.

I only know how to write the equation: 3Li7 + 1H1 → 2He4 + 2He4

Can anyone help me? How do i calculate the kinetic energy of the alpha particles??

p.s sorry I am a beginner in physics and I am trying really hard to solve these kind of problems.
