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. Sharky Kesa · 3 years, 8 months ago

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 Doni Wardoyo · 4 years, 1 month ago

@Tushar Gopalka 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! David Mattingly Staff · 4 years, 1 month ago
