the celebrated equation E=mc2 or m=E/c2 (c is the speed of light) tells us how much mass is loss, m, must be suffered by a nuclear reactor in order to generate a given amount of energy, E/ Which of the following statements is correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a)The same equation, E=mc2 or m=E/c2, also tells us how much mass loss, m, must be suffered by a flashlight battery when the flashlight puts out a given amount of energy, E.
