Mass - Energy Relation of Nuclei
Relationship between mass and energyBy the theory of special relativity Einstein showed that mass is another form of energy and one can convert mass-energy into other forms of energy, say kinetic energy and vice-versa.Einstein gave the famous mass-energy equivalence relation
where is the speed of light.
Energy equivalent of massEnergy released if mass of 2 amu is converted into energy is
Mass Energy EquivalenceThe "mass-energy equivalence" principle states that the mass of a system and its energy are the same property in any physical system.
This means that anything having mass has an equivalent amount of energy and vice versa.
