Homework Help: physics

Posted by robin on Friday, January 22, 2010 at 4:51pm.

One atom of Deuterium weighs 2.013553AMU. One atom of Helium weighs 4.002602AMU. In nuclear fusion, the process which powers the Sun and all other stars, 2 atoms of Deuterium are combined to form 1 atom of helium. Calculate the energy released by one such combination. (1AMU = 1.660539x10-27kg)

I really don't know what to do for this question. Even a formula would help me. thanks
