The 3He-3He fuel cycle releases protons and alpha particles, plus 12.9 MeV of energy. No matter where I look, I can't find any information about how that 12.9 MeV is distributed over the fusion products, every source just quotes the 12.9 total.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does anyone know how this energy tends to be distributed, or can show me how to derive it (I'm sure there must be an equation, but I'm only a beginner at this, so I can't guess at what it is).
