A carbon-14 nucleus which is radioactive decays into a beta particle, a neu- trino and N-14 nucleus. In a particular decay, the beta particle has momentum p and the nitrogen nucleus has momentum of magnitude 4 p/3 at an angle of 90 to p. In what direction do you expect the neutrino to be emitted and what would be its momentum?

Solution:
A carbon-14 nucleus which is radioactive decays into a beta particle, a neu- tri
