Long Range Alpha (LRA) emission probability is studied using a one dimensional sudden approximation model. The probability of the energy transfer between the scissioning nucleus and the LRA particles as well as the LRA angular distribution are discussed for several elongations of the nucleus and for several mass splits. Finally, it is shown that a comparison between the calculated LRA emission probability with the corresponding experimental data allows a determination of the Q{alpha}-value at the scission point.
