A muon (m_{μ}c^{2} = 105.7 MeV) at rest decays into a electron (m_{e}c^{2} = 0.511 MeV) and a neutrino (whose mass is very nearly zero).

What is the Kelectron and Kneutrino in MeV?

Step 1

Given,

Step 2

Energy of muon, electron and neutrino will be conserved before and after collision,

Step 3

If we apply conservation of linear momentum though initial momentum...
