That never came from what I wrote. The most important think on that page is the quote from Richard Feynman from The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Vol I by Feynman, Leighton, and Sands, Addison Wesley, (1963)(1989). Section 4-1 What is energy? page 4-1Thank you. I read your link and I can see that energy can be called a property of matter and treated in a bookkeeping way.
It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of what energy is. We do not have a picture that energy comes in little blobs of a definite amount. It is not that way. However, there are formulas for calculating some numerical quantity, and we add it all together it gives “28” - always the same number. It is an abstract thing in that it does not tell us the mechanism or the reasons for the various formulas.
The answer to 1 and 2 are no. Matter is a poorly defined quantity in physics. That's why the best of them avoid it as much as I do. Its no better than the term "stuff." Is there such thing as stuff?Now I have 3 other related questions:
1) Can force be called a "property" of matter? If not then what would you call it?
2)Can torque be called a "property" of matter? If not then what would you call it?
3) Is there such a thing as matter?
Some physicists, such as myself, think that's a poor definition.Physical substance in general, as distinct from mind and spirit; (in physics) that which occupies space and possesses rest mass, especially as distinct from energy.
