# How are matter and energy different?

Einstein showed that matter and energy are equivalent, through the formula E = mc 2 . Thus matter could be regarded as potential energy, but usable energy needs to be released from a suitable sort of matter.

# How are matter and energy similar?

Einstein showed that matter and energy are connected through the equation E = mc 2

# What is the difference between same and similar?

Same means they are Identical with no differences, similar means they are almost identical but have some minor differences. Same: Touch, look and feel are identical. Example, i have the same brand shoe as yours. Similar: Look the same but different. Example, I wear similar shirt as yours. Here (MORE)

# What is the difference between dark matter and dark energy?

The two are quite unrelated. It would be harder to find similarities than differences. More exactly, the two are only related by the fact that (as of 2013) we don't understand either -- thus the name "dark." Dark matter is the type of matter that exists throughout our Universe, which interacts wit (MORE)

# Difference between matter and non matter?

in Hebrews 11:3 it says: "By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible." The Definition of matter is: Matter is all stubstances that exist in the universe; such as paper or pencil. Non matter is thi (MORE)
