# What are some common mistakes students make with nuclear reactions?

Dec 25, 2017

Beimg a student of 10th grade , i know about some common misconceptions :-
1)."law of conservation of mass doesn't always hold true" this statement is wrong , but yet we can't imfer that law of conservation of mass holds true for nuclear reactions .
It has been specified that law of conservation of mass is aplicable to chemical reactions not $\textcolor{\in \mathrm{di} g o}{\text{nuclear}}$.

2). We get to know about $\textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{E = m {c}^{2}}$ , seeing this equation , one might think anything with energy must have mass but it is wrong . the correct statement would be , anything with a considerate ammount of energy will have $\textcolor{g r e e n}{\text{relativistic mass}}$ not $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{rest mass}}$

3). If you listen about radiations for the first time , you may think 'what is it?' , radiations means that particles like $\gamma$(photon) {of high frequency like x-rays} are emmited which are really dangerous .
