What’s the difference between mass and energy?


Nick, from Science Asylum, explains the difference between mass and energy. There is none. Mass is energy compressed in a given space. Most of the weight of a subatomic particle in the nucleus comes from the nuclear strong forces inside the protons and neutrons, not from the particles themselves, like gluons or quarks.

Neat, eh? Remember E=mc^2? Also, check the video about the fact that it is not the Higgs Bosson that gives us mass:
