Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is a very basic question. How do I calculate the total probability for a certain gamma of a decay? For example, I know from empiric method that the 2 gammas from Co60 have a probability of 50%. But for Eu152 I have lots of gammas and I need to compute them all in a simulation program called PENCYL (from the PENELOPE package), so, I have this data:

But the probabilities next to the energies are not the total probabilities... How do I calculate them?

Thanks :)
