In physics, energy is a quantity that provides the capacity to perform work (e.g. Lifting an object) or provides heat.

In physics, and in particular as measured by radiometry, radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic and gravitational radiation.

## Mass–energy equivalence

In physics, mass–energy equivalence is the relationship between mass and energy in a system's rest frame, where the two values differ only by a constant and the units of measurement.

Breaking and making chemical bonds involves energy, which may be either absorbed by or evolved from a chemical system.

## Invariant mass

Portion of the total mass of an object or system of objects that is independent of the overall motion of the system.

Portion of the total mass of an object or system of objects that is independent of the overall motion of the system.

More precisely, it is a characteristic of the system's total energy and momentum that is the same in all frames of reference related by Lorentz transformations.
