This is a shortened equation. The correct equation is \(E^2=(mc^2)^2+pc^2\) where \(p\) represents momentum. As for why, it is all the mass converted into energy along with the momentum.

It is trying to prove that mass can be converted into energy. Since c^2 is constant, a few mass of a radioactive molecule can produce a large number of Energy

It's on my list for one of the thinking like a theorist posts, so we'll get to a big discussion relating to E=mc^2 in a few weeks. Hang on!

I have a probelm with space!!!! Is it proved that space transit between several dimension at each point of time!!!
