NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. A precision determination of the energy released in the following nuclear reactions has been made: (1) [...], (2) [...] , (3) [...], (4) [...], (5) [...], (6) [...], (7) [...]. An electrostatic generator and analyzer was used to furnish a beam of protons of accurately known energy and a double focusing magnetic spectrograph used to perform a momentum analysis of the particles arising in the reactions. A scintillation counter suitable for the detection of particles arising in nuclear reactions is described and the theory of the associated electronic equipinent is given. The Q-values of the reactions are used to calculate the [...] mass difference and three low energy points on the range energy curve are established. A resume of all accurately determined Q-values is given.
