## Goten77 2 years ago find the derivative of e=mc^2

1. Goten77

\[e=mc ^{2}\]

2. hba

Btw, \[e \neq mc^2\]

3. Goten77

:O

4. hba

Haha lol Do we have to derivate it w.r.t c ?

5. hartnn

w.r.t which variable ?

6. hartnn

w.r.t--->with respect to

7. Goten77

hmm which ever is possible

8. hba

So i would consider d/dc

9. hartnn

c is speed of light which is constant, try 'm'

10. hartnn

de/dm is just c^2

11. Goten77

so would it b like 0=c^2

12. sauravshakya

Do u mean to derive it?

13. hartnn

does 'e' depend on 'm' if no, then de/dm=0

14. hba

de = c^2 dm

15. Goten77

|dw:1357225416723:dw|

16. hba

As c is constant c^2 is also constant :)

17. hartnn

whats the purpose of finding the derivative ?

18. Goten77

hmm im not sure... what i was thinking

19. hba

woW

20. hartnn

good.....keep it up.

21. hartnn

one day, you'll end up deriving something more significant than e=mc^2. my best wishes....

22. hba

The amount of kinetic energy it takes to cause an object to gain any amount of mass is equal to the amount of mass gained times c^2.
