1. In Current Science, mass is the quantity of matter which a body contains, as measured by its acceleration under a given force or by the force exerted on it by a gravitational field. In the standard model of particle physics the property of mass of all elementary particles comes from the Higgs Field. The search for the Higg’s boson was one of the major efforts of contemporary particle physics experiments conducted at the Large Hadron Collider.
2. In Neu Theory, mass is one of the four static physical properties of matter. Specifically mass is the measure of the quantity of rise energy that is linked with an equal quantity of spin energy in the form of spinrise. Only the rise energy being contained by spin energy contributes to mass. Spin energy contributes to volume of a matter object but not its mass.« Back to Glossary Index
