Heat and Expansion Yes. According to the spring ball model of solids, on exposing solids to thermal stress, the potential energy will increase as a whole in the system of molecules or ions or atoms ( as the case may be) that make-up the object mentioned above. This means the distance between any two…

1) So far, we have not been able to figure out a way to get objects with mass to travel at the speed of light. The energy required to do so would be infinitely large, and since there's no such thing as an infinite supply of energy, it's impossible. 2) That being said, if you were to travel at very c…
