This learning material is high school level
Let say I have a nuclear reaction A + B ##\rightarrow## C + D where total mass of A + B is bigger than C + D. This will mean that there is some mass of A + B that is converted into energy,
If I have another reaction P + Q ##\rightarrow## X + Y where mass of X + Y is bigger than P + Q, what does this mean?
Can I just interpret that some of energy of P + Q (maybe KE) is converted into mass of X + Y?
Another question: is it possible that mass of products = mass of reactants?
Thanks
