Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0E = energy, M = mass, c = speed of light in vaccum. The energy = The mass times the speed of light^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and since C is just a constant, what this really says is that energy IS mass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2?... I haven't done chemistry yet, I just want to know what it means in general human terms. Why is everybody so excited about it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It can be interpreted as if the mass 'm' travels faster than the of speed of light it changes its form to energy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Wait since I have mass, does that mean I'm energetic?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it means you have potential energy :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have potential, but it requires to be extrapolated beyond the limits and you may change your form when you overstep the speed of light. Remember you 'd be no more a human being, you'd assume the shape of an Angel or some Jin. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It depends, if you wanna be hot, then you'd b Jin, otherwise Angel or Seraphims are cool and sizzling.
