## anonymous one year ago If 1.0 gram of matter was converted to energy, how much energy would be formed? 9.0 x 10-13 joules 9.0 x 1013 joules 3.0 x 1013 joules 3.0 x 108 joules

i know you use e=mc^2

but I'm not sure what everything stands for

E is the energy c is the speed of light $$c\approx3 \times 10^{8}~m/s$$ m is the mass. In order to obtain the answer in joule you need to convert gram to kilogram as: $\large 1~J=1~\frac{ kg \times m^2 }{ s^2 }$

I help you til you get the question correct. All you got to do really, is to convert your 1 gram to kilogram and then plug into the equation using the speed of light I gave you.

Thank you SO much!!! this helped a lot
