Textbook Problem

The mass of the fuel in a nuclear reactor decreases by an observable amount as it puts out energy. Is the same true for the coal and oxygen combined in a conventional power plant? If so, is this observable in practice for the coal and oxygen? Explain.

To determine

Whether mass of the coal and oxygen, combined in a conventional power plant will decrease or not as its puts out energy. Also, determine whether this is observable in practice for the coal and oxygen or not.

Explanation

Introduction:

Relativistic energy is the change of mass with energy. Relativistic energy conservation is related with the mass as in the classical law of conservation, mass and energy both change butdoes not affect each other.

Nuclear reactor have fission reaction of the radioactive element so the mass will decrease due to this fission reaction which convert into energy. As the nucleus of the radioactive element product is changing, the mass will also change...
