    Answer: The total energy created by the Alpha decay.

    Explanation: The sum total of the kinetic energy of the alpha particle and the new nucleus is the total energy created by the alpha decay.

    Consider the decay of a radioactive nuclide by the spontaneous emission from its nuclei of alpha particles. An alpha particle which is composed of two protons and two neutrons and has a charge of +2. With an appreciable mass and its ejection from the nuclide creates a certain amount of recoil energy in the nucleus. The total energy (Ex) created by alpha decay is therefore the sum of the kinetic energy of the particle, the recoil energy given to the new nucleus, and the total energy of any emitted gamma rays.
