$(a)\;2.2 MeV\qquad(b)\;1.7 MeV\qquad(c)\;1.9 MeV\qquad(d)\;1.6 MeV$

Answer : (c) $\;1.9 MeV$

Explanation :

Since mass of an atom include the masses of atomic electrons , the approprite no.of electron masses must be subtracted from given values

Reactans$\qquad \; \qquad \; \qquad \; \qquad \; \qquad \; \qquad \;$Products

$_{3}^{7}Li\;7.016 -3m_{e} \;_{4}^{7}Be \qquad \; \qquad \qquad 1.01693-4m_{e}$

$_{1}^{1}H\;1.078-1m_{e}\;_{0}^{1}n \qquad \qquad \qquad \qquad1.0866$

Total $\;8.023-4m_{e} \qquad \; Total \; 8.025-4m_{e}$

Mass defect = $\; 8.023-8.02559=-0.00176$

The Q value of reaction

$Q=-0.00179 u=-16.5 MeV$

The energy is supplied as KE of bombarding proton. The incident proton must have more than this energy because the system must possess some KE even after the reaction So , that momentum is conserved .

With momentum conservation taken into account the minimum KE that incident particle must have can be found with formula.

$\varepsilon_{th}=-(1+\large\frac{m}{H})\;\theta=-(1+\large\frac{1}{7})\;(-1.65)$

$=-1.89 MeV\;.$
