quote:Originally posted by another_someoneThe energy the couples all atoms together (different when we talk about sub-atomic particles, or about large lumps of matter, such as whole planets = but as far as individual atoms go) is the electric force. The electric force is not the same as electromagnetism, but it is closely related.With regard to your experiments – if you throw RMR at an atom, you will raise its energy level, and this will (very fractionally) have the effect of raising its mass. Nonetheless, the amount of energy involved, as well as then energies involved in the chemical bonds, is so small as to effect the mass to only an immeasurably small degree.George
