For a given Q value and incident particle called a
For a given Q value and incident particle (called a), how does the threshold energy required to initiate a specific nuclear reaction vary as the mass of the target (called A) changes? Sketch a graph of threshold energy versus tar-get mass ranging from target masses on the order of the incident mass to target masses much greater than the incident mass. What is the threshold energy if MA >> ma? Explain what this means physically.
