    Hmmmm yeah, looks like you don't have enough info. If you had the masses of the various particles you could calculate it easily using e = mc^2. I take it you weren't given them anywhere in the question/in a data book?

    The only suggestion I would have to solving this would be to use something called the semi-empirical mass formula. But that's well beyond sixth form.
