Homework Statement


I'm taking a nuclear physics seminar, and I'm wondering what causes the differences in the energy spectra between alpha, beta, and gamma emissions. Specifically, why is dispersion for energy values in alpha radiation so different from that of beta? I'm also looking for a more general description for gamma dispersion. I'm sure that this has to due with the different modes of decay, but I would still like a descriptive answer. Thanks
