Is space energy

  1. Dec 8, 2009 #1
    can anyone tell me what space is, I know matter is energy and time is changes in the state of energy, so is space a static form of energy. I'd like someone to explain using simple terms if possible please.

    Space is an embedding metric of the distribution of mass and energy.

    Space, itself, is not energy, but contains energy.

    The volume of space enclosing a black hole contains much more energy than the same volume of space in an intergalactic area with little mass in it.
