Re: Another Matter (y)

You probably know more about this than I. But the only time I know when matter is changed to energy is when two particles are collided. The result is smaller particles which don't add up to the weight of the original two. The missing matter has changed into energy. When that's added in using Einstein's equation - energy = mc2 it all adds up to the original weight (hopefully). Most of the time it is done by two particles fusing and the resulting one particle is less than the original two again leaving off energy. Nuclear fusion. You'll have to wait for the heavy guns here to bring on the equations. As regards turning energy into matter maybe photons being absorbed and electron appearing but I don't think that's done like the above example.
