Can something occupy space but not have mass?
Is there anything in nature that occupies space but that is without mass? A: Not that I know of. Even things that have zero rest mass, such as photons, have some energy and you can always define an ‘equivalent mass’ , mequiv=E/c2 which affects and is affected by gravitational fields.
Is there anything in the world that has no mass?
In particle physics, a massless particle is an elementary particle whose invariant mass is zero. The two known massless particles are both gauge bosons: the photon (carrier of electromagnetism) and the gluon (carrier of the strong force).
Does mass occupy space?
Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Mass gives an object the property of weight and inertia (resistance to change in the motion of an object). The volume of an object is the amount of space it occupies.
Which does not occupy space?
Air does not occupy any space.
Do all particles have mass?
Most fundamental matter particles, such as electrons, muons and quarks, get their mass from their resistance to a field that permeates the universe called the Higgs field. The more the Higgs field pulls on a particle, the more mass it has. Indeed, they seem to be without mass. Massless particles are purely energy.
Does not need any space to occupy?
Answer:Chair, air, love, smell, hate, almonds, thought, cold, cold drink, smell of perfume.
What if there is no mass?
If a particle has no mass (m = 0) and is at rest (p = 0), then the total energy is zero (E = 0). But an object with zero energy and zero mass is nothing at all. Therefore, if an object with no mass is to physically exist, it can never be at rest. Such is the case with light.
How can something have no mass?
Which thing does not occupy space?
Air does not occupy any space.
Why does a photon have no mass but occupy space?
The quantity of interaction of these particles with other particles generate the mass,these particles have no interaction with elementary like particle photon, thus photon has no mass (although on the other hand photon has energy). So that particles like higgs boson,photons ,gluons,does not have mass but occupies the space.
Is light massless or massless?
So you just made it occupy some space but the individual particles that make up light has no mass. Photons are massless particles although image that mirrored box has no mass now you put light in it and trap the light now weigh it. It will have some mass.
Why do some particles have no mass and some have mass?
(Some particles have no mass. They don’t interact with the Higgs field; they don’t feel the field.) The quantity of interaction of these particles with other particles generate the mass,these particles have no interaction with elementary like particle photon, thus photon has no mass (although on the other hand photon has energy).
Does the electron have mass or does it occupy space?
In any case, I’d like to cover the other direction: has mass → does not occupy space. According to classical particle physics, the electron has mass (about kg) but is an elementary, point particle. That is, it has no volume at all.
