I was reading online about particle decay. For the decay of Strontium-90 to Yttrium-90, a beta particle is emitted. The energy distribution of beta particle is continuous. If I know that the maximum possible energy of the beta particle is 0.546MeV, will I be able to calculate the peak? If not, what other information will I need?
