    I had to revie it to be sure.

    Photons have energy and momentum but no mass. The enrgy of the photons trace back to the energy in the flame.

    If that is actually said then the someone saying it should be flogged. Current or charge can only flow through a closed loop in electronic circuits would be a better description. The reason that...

    Combustion ceases. The box goes to equilibrium. Particulates from combustion settle to the bottom. Convection currents cease and the gases settle based on mass.

    Where does the loss of mass show up?
  9. I think you are misinterpreting AE. Energy does...

    You are making the question much more convoluted than it is. The question is, does adding energy to a system increase its mass?

    Newton said no it doesn't. That mass and energy are independent and...

    That doesn't work. If more electrons left the battery than returned, then the battery would be positively charged.

    If that were the case, then electrons would be drawn to the battery until that...
