B A question about quantum entanglement

  1. Aug 11, 2016 #1
    Please forgive any ignorance in advance, I have a lot of general science knowledge but know little about physics. I'm not sure if two particles with mass can be entangled, but if they can what happens if you entangle two particles while only one is accelerated, do they both gain mass, or only the one that is being accelerated?

    And in case you didn't pick up from Nugatory's answer: particles with mass (such as electrons, ions, atoms, molecules) can be entangled. However, doing something (such as accelerating) to one does not automatically cause the same thing to happen to the other.
