We have determined the spectra of neutrons and protons following the decay of Lambda hypernuclei through the one and twonucleoninduced mechanisms. The momentum distributions of the primary nucleons are calculated and a Monte Carlo simulation is used to account for final state,interactions. The shape of the proton spectrum is sensitive to the value of Gamma(n)/Gamma(p) the ratio of neutron to protoninduced decay, and the available experimental information favors larger values than those predicted by the onepionexchange model. From the spectra we calculate the number of neutrons (Nn) and protons (Np) per Lambda decay and show how the measurement of these quantities, particularly Np, can lead to a determination of Gamma(n)/Gamma(p). We also show that the consideration of the twonucleoninduced channel has a repercussion on the results, widening the band of allowed values of Gamma(n)/Gamma(p) with respect to what is obtained neglecting this channel.
