Elastic and Inelastic neutrons scattering..!!

How I can find the energy lost by the neutron in elastic scattering and inelastic scattering, if we assumed its isotropic scattering in the center of mass?

Your question does not make sense. Elastic scattering is just sophomore-physics billiard-ball scattering, and inelastic scattering depends on what mechanisms of internal excitation are involved. Are you asking for a cross-section database with branching ratios, or....?
