    Well I was thinking about this wild idea of using People in the USA that are getting the lethal ingection to be insted place in a chamber that will turn there mass into ENEGRY!!!

    I did the formula E=mc^2 but I my anwser was way to big for my calculator... and what still I didn't get it at the end

    I did a search in Wikipedia about it, and 1 kilogram of mass is like 20 megatons of TNT... so what about 90 kilograms...

    and for how long can I power the USA with that?

    Wow, that's amazing. But what kind of energy is it going to be ? How would it be harnessed ?

    Sounds pretty daft to me - you may as well just use a cow

    or if your in a western country than you may as well use peoples body fat.

    theres sooo much more of it.

    C~3*10^8
    C²~9*10^16
    E=MC²
    M=90
    90=9*10^1
    E=9*9*10^(16+1)=81*10^17=8,1*10^18
    then u divide that with the power mof the USA has.

    This will work as soon as you can figure out a way to turn any matter into pure energy. The only way thus far is antimatter mixing with the matter, but producing antimatter is very inneficient and very slow. And even if it worked, rocks or water would be far easier to use then dead convicts.

    Hahah... So can you people say that I came out with a BRILLIAN SCIENTICIF DISCOVERY (that many other people with out Ph.D on anything could have already Discoverd). WEeeeeeee... I should be award the Noble Prize.

    Oh and for the thing about where we should store all that energy... Well there is always GIANT BATTEIRS THE SIZE OF the WORLD TRADE CENTER (they would be like two AAA Batteries but bigger and with more capacity).

    Also if you are wounder why not rocks... well why not just tell criminals that if they continue jacking my car from my house you will get zapped into electricity and are going to be use to power Electrical Toilets... maybe that will scare them alittle more... And even so... it wouldn't be that fun just extracting electricity from Rock or ham...

    So then we would have 8,100,000,000,000,000,000 joule or 8.1 × 10^18 joule

    So then if we see it in other better understandable termes we can say that:
    One Kiloton of TNT is 4.184 × 10^12

    So lets compare
    8,100,000,000,000,000,000 Human Body
    0,000,000,041,840,000,000 TNT Stick

    and then if we compare it to the Bomb that felt in Hiroshima
    8,100,000,000,000,000,000 Human Body
    0,000,000,063,000,000,000 Little Boy

    So we can conclude that the if we some how develop a way to make the human mass into Energy and we make a small mistake of containing the energy we can pretty much Destroy a big chunk of the world.

    This post makes such little sense. Why not just use a tree, rather than a human on death row?

    for my part why i wouldnt use that is because i am a evil person and a tree aint as fun as a human bieng

    why not use alot of these objects? why not put them in a huge container, make energy?

    I am a Tree Huger!!! I will not kill those SUPER INTELLIGENT BEINGS ...

    Even so... People in death row are so dumb to do what they did... I mean... why did they do those crimes (I am not speaking about those that didn't do it but those lawers were able to beat the system and sended the defended to prison)

    Actually I wouldn't be surprised if that destroyed the entire world +. That ratio shows that the human body is more than 10^8 times more powerful than lil' boy... and I'm pretty sure that bomb took out more than 1/100000000 of the planet... all of a sudden I'm really not up for this idea..

    Yeah but then this mass convertion to enegry has to also be 100% efficient or if not then we would have the same problem with Nuclear Plants in which they only extract a .3% of the energy of the 235(U)

    The conversion wouldnt be 100% efficient. I don't know how efficient it could be, but even 0.3% efficieny at these energy levels produces a monstrous amount of energy.

    Yeah, but nuclear plants aren't actually converting matter into energy - they're just releasing nuclear binding energy, which accounts for only a very tiny percent of the U235's mass.

    energy can only go out during a reaction... where can we react with :S? an antihuman?
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    That would be about 2 gigatons. I doubt it would destroy the world - they actually proposed building nuclear bombs that big during the cold war, but decided it would be overkill.

    It would probably just wipe out a few thousand square miles and screw up the weather for a few months.

    So now I don't just have a Human Bomb I have some sort of weather scrambler... Just kidding

    But yeah... WHAT IS ANTI-Matter?? I thought it was just Sci-fi

    the same as matter.. The only difference is that it reacts with matter.

    Very real. It can be created in particle accelerators and colliders. Certain high energy natural processes also create it. Of course within nanoseconds it encounters ordinary matter and the two anihilate themselves in a busrt of energy.
    Also, in a so called vacuum there is, seemingly, spontaneous creation of matter/anti-matter pairs, which then anihilate themselves thus balancing the energy equation. It has been speculated that the BigBang may have been a giant vacuum fluctuation.

    hmm, if matter + antimatter create energy, this means that there is no such thing as antienergy, because then nothing would create... but this also means that energy is a particle, and that everything has been build up from the same, how can something that has been build off from the same substance react??

    ionic binding or organic energy aren't out there, so what is?

    What ever you said did not made any sence... except for the anti-energy... DO YOU WANT TO SEE ANTI-Energy... look at a concrete wall.. that is anti-energy
