In summary, the conversation is about whether or not it is true that one cubic centimeter of pure vacuum contains enough energy to condense into 10^80 - 10^120 grams of matter. The conclusion is that this statement is not true and there is only a very small amount of energy in a cubic centimeter of vacuum, making it impossible to create even a single gram of matter.

I was reading through energy devices and i want to know if this statement is true.

"Today we know that one cubic centimeter of pure vacuum contains enough energy to condense into 1080 – 10120 grams of matter!"

the 10 is to the 80th
the other 10 is to the 120th power

Just an opinion...
To obtain energy from vacuum you have to lower the energy of the vacuum, which is impossible because the vacuum has the lowest possible energy...even if it is not 0...
So ?

No. See this thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=19082 . There are probably about 6e-16 joules in a cubic centimeter of vacuum -- enough in a cubic meter to create maybe 3-4 atoms or so. Nowhere near a single gram, by around a factor of ~10^23
 

1. What is an energy device?

An energy device is a tool or machine that is designed to convert one form of energy into another. It can also refer to devices that store, transmit, or utilize energy.

2. How do energy devices work?

Energy devices work by harnessing energy from a source, such as fossil fuels, nuclear reactions, or renewable sources like wind or solar, and converting it into a usable form, such as electricity or mechanical energy.

3. What are the different types of energy devices?

There are many different types of energy devices, including generators, solar panels, wind turbines, batteries, and fuel cells. Each type works differently to convert or store energy.

4. What are the benefits of using energy devices?

Using energy devices can have several benefits, including reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, decreasing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and providing a more sustainable and renewable source of energy.

5. What are some challenges facing energy devices?

One major challenge facing energy devices is their reliance on limited resources, such as fossil fuels, which are non-renewable. Additionally, the cost of implementing and maintaining energy devices can be high, and there are also issues with storage and distribution of energy from renewable sources.
