Main Question or Discussion Point
Is it correct to say that the core idea of energy as the ablity to do work is the same for Newtionian Physics and Relativity?
That is one of the critical differences, and it's easy to argue that it is the critical difference. Your paper is on solid ground.the concept of energy (the ability to do work) is common to Newtonian Physics and Relativity and the critical difference is that Einstein discovered the connection between mass and energy which was unknown to Newtonian science. or do you believe that this statement is open to debate?
