This is a stupid question, but it has always been a question of mine that I have never been able to find a strait answer. To be more specific, is quantum electrodynamics or special relativity used to model or predict fission reactions such as those found in a nuclear explosion or inside a nuclear reactor? Do the classical laws of conservation of mass and energy still apply or only conservation of mass/energy?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
