The sun and E=MC2?
« on: 12/10/2005 03:11:00 »
Hi, i was learning about E=MC2 and i learned that the sun shoots out light ,which is converted to mass when it extends through E=MC2, but if the sun keeps shooting out light then won't it get smaller?

Or am i just not making any sense what so ever and should shut up.

In that equation, c squared is a very big number so a very small amount of sun's  mass is lossed with a very large amount of energy released.
