A couple questions: is mass quantized? Energy is quantized, and momentum has eigenvalues for its operator so I took that to mean that momentum is also quantized.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If those two are true (might not be! I'm new to this :tongue:), following

E^2 = (pc)^2 + (mc^2)^2

Would that not mean that mass is also quantized?

And the actual question I wanted to ask:

Is there an operator associated with mass?
