in gama decay there is no change in mass number...


initially nucleous was at rest ,due to internal forces it will move after giving a gamma photon..


so we can apply conservation of momentam here


final momentam = initial momentam = 0


P(gamma photon) + P(nucleous) = 0  .......................1


  energy of photon = 7Mev


   p(photon) = E/c                        (c is speed of light , E =7Mev (given) )


 p(nucleous) = -E/c             ( from eq 1)


  kinetic energy = P2/2m = E2/2mc2 


now put E , C & m ,u will get the  1.1Mev ans
