Do quarks temporarily lose mass when giving off gravitons?
Imagine a quark, which has x mass. The quark gives off a graviton, which has y energy. My question is, before the graviton "snaps" back, would the quark lose mass equivalent to y energy?
xnew = xold - y
xold is the mass of the quark,
xnew is the mass of the quark after giving off a graviton of y energy.

No. You have apparently not studied the QM version of Conservation of Energy.
(Oh, and we're not sure Gravitons exist. Pretty much the same argument applies to Gluons, Photons, and W and Z bosons.

I haven't studied it; I'm not even out of my freshman year of high school. But you did give me something I might learn in my pass time. Thanks!
