RE: First Law of Thermodynamics, Nuclear

E = mc(squared) really does apply.  However you must remember to balance
that with ALL of the energy and, often times, finding all of the energy in
this equation is difficult.  Remember 'c' = the speed of light or ~3 X 10(to
the 8) m/sec.  And all energy MUST be conserved.  Hope that helps!

Subject: First Law of Thermodynamics, Nuclear

Does anyone know this Law in detail as it related to Nuclear Power.
It stated something about conservation of energy and matter except in a
nuclear reaction.
Or energy and matter can not be destroyed except in a nuclear reaction.

Thanks in advance
