In a proposed fusion reactor, one possible reaction is H(2,1) + H(3,1) -> He(4,2) + n(1,0)

How much energy might 150kg of the appropriate amount of isotopes of hydrogen produce?

Values given

Ar of H(2,1) = 2.014102

Ar of H(3,1) = 3.016050

Ar of He(4,2) = 4.002602

Ar of n(1,0) = 1.008665

2. Relevant equations

E=mc^2?

3. The attempt at a solution

The correct answer is 5.07 x 10^16 J but I can't seem to get it. Any help is appreciated thanks.
