You can use e=Mcc2 to calculate the force, but that's it. You cannot use this formula to calculate distance, shockwave, etc. There are many other variables to account for.

Actually what they wanted was about fallout radii, a school presentation, apparently.

They needed to know the types of radiation, the longevity of the radio activity, (as per emitter/emmissions) and the need to pay attention to the direction of the winds
