Does electricity have mass (and therefore weight (on Earth))?
A little back story here. It is 1am or thereabouts and I’m studying for an exam in the morning. My computer was out of battery and I was changing to my spare. Upon removing the depleted battery a thought came to me; ‘if this battery is empty, why does it weigh so much?’.
Now sure, batteries, due to their construction are pretty weighty - lets not get into that. Lets just think about the main question, does electricity have mass.
I’d say it must, as its a form or energy, and energy and mass are much the same I’m told. E = mc2 and all that.
But I’m not a scientist, I haven’t got a PhD in anything yet so until then, I seek the help of an expert, or at the very least someone with a few cents to offer up here…
