In several areas of theoretical physics it is useful to know how a quasilocal energy transforms under conformal rescalings or generalized Kerr–Schild mappings. We derive the transformation properties of the Brown–York quasilocal energy in spherical symmetry and we contrast them with those of the Misner–Sharp–Hernandez energy.
