Energy and volume

  1. Jul 3, 2011 #1
    I am only a beginner at this but was wanting a bit of clarification on this.

    As far as I can understand at a quantum level every thing, particles etc. are not spheres or dots as we imagine them but they are infinitely small points of energy and mass.

    So does this mean that these points take up no physical volume then?
