The purpose of this research is to identify a single-Λ hypernucleus and its decay products which support to get more information about hyperon-nucleon interaction. Before performing the analysis of a single-Λ hypernucleus, first, we have deduced the density of emulsion by calibrating the range-energy relation using alpha decay events data from thorium series. It is very important for the mass reconstruction of hypernucleus events in nuclear emulsion. And we have reconstructed a single-Λ hypernucleus event by using the kinematical reconstruction for mesonic and non-mesonic decay modes. From the result of our analysis, we can uniquely identify that single-Λ hypernucleus is and decay products are 4He,3He, proton and neutron.
