Inertia of Potential Energy
Higbie, J.
Physics Education, 10, 1, 55-57, Jan 75
Demonstrates that when a system of attracting or repelling bodies is bound, its rest mass will generally be different than the sum of the rest masses of the individual bodies. The mass excess or defect is simply related to the stored potential energy of the system. (Author/MLH)
