These phenomena can be explained with help of generalized mass-energy equation [DELTA]E = A[c.sup.2][DELTA]M.
Further the generalized mass-energy equation [DELTA]E = A[c.sup.2][DELTA]M, is derived, and E = [DELTA][mc.sup.2] is special case of the former depending upon value of A (depends upon the characteristics conditions of the process).
