Theoretical Analysis of Electromagnetic Waves, Nuclear Fission and Nuclear Fusion to State that Mass-Energy Equivalence has Exception
Abstract: With the advent of 20th century the focus of study for major scientific group was electromagnetic waves. There were varied opinions between the group for supporting Newtons theory of light as a particle and Maxwells theory of light as a wave. With the development of Plancks constant and Einsteins theory of relativities it became profound that light, which is type of electromagnetic wave, behaves both as a particle and as wave, and thus the theory of wave-particle duality came into existence. In mid-20th century after the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the theory and analysis of nuclear fission became profound. During this time the voids in the chain reaction for the tremendous amount of energy available were filled with the conclusion that a part of mass is getting converted into energy, according to E = mc2. In this paper we are making an attempt, through theoretical analysis, to conclude that electromagnetic radiation and thus its energy can only be produced by accelerating a charged particle and not by conversion of any type of mass, as is given the current nuclear fission and nuclear fusion reactions.
