The classic discrepancy between a calorimetric measurement of the total decay energy of RaE (210/83 Bi) and the kinetic energy calculated to be available by special relativity from the element's beta decay velocity spectrum led to Pauli's postulate of the neutrino. A new experiment is proposed in which a calorimetric measurement can be used to judge the validity of the kinetic energy formula of special relativity, independent of the existence of neutrinos.
