This paper introduces the essences of mass, time, length and energy, as well as their standard measurement units, analyzes mass-velocity relationships in different theories, and comments on these relationships. Also the paper negates the mass-velocity equation and the mass-energy equation in the special relativity; analyzes the source and generating mechanism of atomic energy. The author deems that mass is mass, energy is energy; mass cannot be transformed into energy and energy cannot be transformed into mass. These two concepts can??t be converted into each other. There are mass conservation and energy conservation, individually.
