No. Energy, mass and light-speed, none of which involve pi.

In physics, mass-energy equivalence is the concept that mass and energy are the same thing. This is better known in its formula E=MC2 developed by Albert Einstein, which led to nuclear binding (and splitting?) which ultimately provided the basis for the atomic bomb.

No... Nuclear energy can be produced either by the fusion of 2 lighter nuclei or the fission of a heavier nucleus into 2 aprox equal nuclei by mass. Since Uranium has a very heavy nucleus, it can only undergo fission and not fusion. For generating energy through fusion, Hydrogen nuclei were the first to be used and are primarily preferred since hydrogen has a very light nucleus. Hydrogen fusion is what is the source of energy of the Sun and thus, the origin of the notion of nuclear fusion. The amount of energy produced by any nuclear reaction is given by Einsteins famous mass-energy relation - E=mc2 where c is the speed of light and m is the mass disappeared after the reaction.. NAMAN

This equation was given by the great scientist Albert Einstein. This is the relation between mass and the energy. According to Einstein, the mass and energy one and the same. This equation is used in the calculation of the energy liberated in the fusion and fission reaction of the nuclei. where the mass is the defect mass or the mass converted into the energy, c is the velocity of light (c= 3x10^8) and E is energy. for example : if in a fission of the U-235 the mass defect is 0.2233 amu , then the energy released will be equals to E= mc2 =&gt; E=0.2233x9x10^16 =&gt; E= 2.097x10^16 J

Nuclear energy is a type of energy that needs very little mass. Nuclear energy is used to generate electricity and heat.

It relates the energy of a particle to it's mass. So, if you were to convert 1kg of material into pure energy, the energy you would get out would be calculated using E = mc2.However, this is just the simplified version for a particle that isn't moving. If the particle is moving with a momentum p, then the full formula is used: E2 = p2c2 + m2c4.

It dissapates and joins the mass of dark energy used for hyperdrives according to Han Solo and Mass Effect.

E = mc2 is used to calculate how much energy is produced when you convert matter to energy. The variables stand for E = Energy, m = mass, and c = speed of light. If you do the math correctly, you will see that a very small amount of mass will generate a very large amount of energy. The equation can be used to calculate the energy of an atomic bomb or a nuclear power plant where mass and energy are converted.

They are often used to calculate the energy used in a specific process involving work.

One of the findings of quantum mechanics is that as we look at the world on an increasingly small scale, the distinction between matter and energy, or between particles and waves, becomes increasingly blurred. Some physicists have used the word "wavicles" to describe this intermediate state between particles and waves. It is also true that energy exists in certain discrete amounts, or quanta, and you cannot have a fraction of a quantum.

Yes, the formula for kinetic energy is: KE = &frac12;mv2

Energy is measured in Joules for all applications. However in nutrition calories are also used. There is a fixed relation, 1 calorie = 4.2 Joules.

E=mc2. Because the atomic bomb contains an abundant amount of energy, and E stands for energy, used for the explosion. Which is because the atomic bomb contains a small piece of uranium which is triggered when the bomb lands. by:Kevin Sjogreen

because the density is defined to be the mass over the volume. the slope is just a math term used to define such a relation.

The mass/luminosity relation is important because it can be used to find the distance to binary systems which are too far for normal parallax measurements.

A carbon 12 atom has a mass defect of .098931 u. This number, the mass defect, represents the binding energy of the nucleus of the nucleus of the atom, and how energy has to be used to split this nucleus.

That is because of the mass/energy equivalence. The energy that leaves the atoms after a nuclear reaction - initially as gamma rays - has a corresponding mass. If this energy later converts to another type of energy (such as heat), it will still have the corresponding energy. The conversion factor is, precisely, mc2 - that is, an energy of 9 x 1018 joules has a mass of 1 kg.

Adenosine TriPhosphate - used as temporary energy storage. When a Phosphate group is removed to make Adenosine DiPhosphate this energy is released.

That is used as a conversion factor between mass and energy.

No. CV, as in "caloric value", is a measure of heating value; different units can be used, but any unit used is energy/mass, which of course is not the same as simply energy.

The amount of energy used to melt a solid is known as the enthalpy of fusion, and this value is on a per gram or per kg basis (or on a mole basis). At any rate, it is related to the mass. The larger the mass, the more energy is needed. So, in order to calculate energy needed to melt a solid, one needs to know the heat of fusion AND the MASS of the object.

The principle of mass conversion to energy. The mass loss (due to nuclear fission or nuclear fusion) is converted to thermal energy. The thermal energy is converted (through turbines) to mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is converted (through electric generators) to electrical energy.

A tiny unit of energy, used for subatomic particles, is the electron-volt (eV). Multiples, like keV, MeV, and TeV, are also used. Because the mass-energy equivalence is quite clear in the subatomic world, the mass of particles is also often expressed in electron-volts.A tiny unit of energy, used for subatomic particles, is the electron-volt (eV).
