Problem 40E

A chunk of radioactive material encased in an idealized, perfectly insulating blanket gets warmer as its nuclei decay and release energy. Does the mass of the radioactive material and the blanket change? If so, does it increase or decrease?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 40E Step 1 : This can be explained using the principle of mass-energy equivalence, which says there is energy present in every chunk of energy Step 2: As the chuck of radioactive material releases energy , the mass of the radioactive material reduces, whereas the mass of the insulating blanket increases However there will be no change in the net mass of the change , since the energy is redistributed between the chuck of the material and the insulating blanket , which also means that the energy is conserved
