What are the similarities and differences between matter and energy?
Energy is associated with power and motion, and matter is associated with everything physical. Both are types of science vocabulary.

Philosophically one might think of matter as "frozen" energy, andenergy as "dynamic matter." Most energy escapes in the form of electromagnetic radiation. Hencethe "c" in the …equation above, relating matter and energy. Just asmall amount of mass, multiplied by the speed of light squared(which is a LARGE constant) translates into an enormous amount ofenergy. Matter is not frozen solid, it vibrates, like trapped energyyearning to be free. Free neutron half life is around 12 minutes,after which these decay into proton/electron pairs. The massdifference (neutrons are slightly larger than a proton and electroncombined) is imparted to the electron in the form of energy. Thesehigh speed electrons are known as "beta" particles. Carefulobservations of protons in the Super Kamiokande Detector in Japanhave not revealed any instance of proton decay. So it is possiblethis form of matter may be constant, never "thawing" back intoenergy. The smaller the particle, the larger the wave form associated withit. These waves are known as DeBroglie waves. All matter propagates(moves through space) by wave, and energy is associated with thewave. Note: This energy is different from the vibrational energymentioned above, which is released (or reduced) via emission ofinfrared radiation, or long wave electromagnetic radiation known asheat. The less heat atoms or molecules contain, the slower theyvibrate.
Answer . Matter- anything that takes up space and has mass. Energy- the capacity to do work. Matter Energy. 1) Matter moves in 1) Energy is one way. a cycle and …eventually is turned. into heat. 2) Matter has to 2) Energy doesn't necessarily. physically take have to physically take up space. up space
Matter is anything that takes up space or has volume Energy is the ability to do work
Matter is a form of energy. Energy, in classical physics is defined as either work or heat. Einstein gave us a direct correllation between the two with the equation E=mc 2 . H…eat energy or the energy stored by doing work can both be converted into matter and vice versa.
Energy is the capacity for doing work. Energy exists in various forms including kinetic, potential, thermal, chemical, electrical, and nuclear and can be converted from one …form to another. Whereas, matter is the material substance that constitutes the observable universe and, together with energy, forms the basis of all objective phenomena.
Energy and matter are the same thing, except matter is in a form that you can touch.
Matter is the same as energy, just in a different form that you can touch and feel.
What is the difference between dark energy and dark matter and what are the inferred affects of each?
From my studies dark energy creates electrical phtons making a stonger pull to the source than dark matter does. In fact, I think that dark energy can power a car, but sadly i…t is impossible to harness dark energy. I'll have to do little more research to be sure.
No IDEA because i have a same question
Einstein showed that matter and energy are connected through the equation E = mc 2
The two are quite unrelated. It would be harder to find similarities than differences. More exactly, the two are only related by the fact that (as of 2013) we don't understan…d either -- thus the name "dark." Dark matter is the type of matter that exists throughout our Universe, which interacts with baryonic matter (ie, the stuff we understand) only through gravity. This stuff (whatever it happens to be) warps space and prevents galaxies from flying apart as they spin; but does not interact via the electromagnetic force, the strong force, or the weak force. Its mass density in our Universe, as best we can tell, is about six times greater than that of bayronic matter. Dark energy is whatever is causing the space within our Universe to increase the rate of expansion. Gravity SHOULD be slowing down that expansion over billions of years, but SOMETHING is causing the rate to go higher. What is causing this? -- we have no idea!!
Friction and cohesiveness are the only differences. The matter has stronger potential energy with stronger cohesive forces and the energy has stronger kinetic energy with de…monstration as frictional force.
some stuff happens
light and matter can behave as waves and particules.
Mainly in that both are mysterious - not much is known about them. You are right but these two are not similar. Actually they are opposite to each other. dark matter pull the …body closer while dark matter push them away. Dark matter can't be doing both pulling and pushing as your answer suggested. So there is a mistake in the sentence. What is that. Sorry for my mistake and thanx for suggestion please read second dark matter as dark energy. Infect dark energy push the objects like planet away
They can be measured the same way in Joules (a unit of energy) and clearly they both contain energy.
Matter - eg Carbon, Water, flows as part of a "cycle", driven bythe flow of energy which is only one way.
