In what ways are matter and energy related that were not known before the development of relativity and quantum mechanics?
Quantum mechanics is a fundamental physics theory that describes the physical aspects of nature at the level of atoms and subatomic particles. It tries to explain and characterize the properties of molecules and atoms as well as their constituents, such as electrons, protons, neutrons, and even more exotic particles like quarks and gluons.
