## Homework Statement

A hypothetical radioactive nucleus undergoes decay, -> (massless). The mass difference between the initial nucleus and the final nucleus (computed with the atomic masses for the neutral atoms!) is 0.003384 atomic mass units . Since in the difference one electron too few has been subtracted, we must correct for this. The neutrino gets maximum energy when the electron gets zero kinetic energy. Neglecting the kinetic energy of the daughter nucleus calculate the maximum neutrino energy in MeV

## The Attempt at a Solution

I thought to multiyply it by 931.5 then subtract .51, but that answer does not seem to be right. Im not sure how to go about this problem. please help
