# Mass Energy Formula

## Mass Energy Formula

Mass energy formula is one of the significant foundations of Physics. German Physicist Albert Einstein put forth this famous law. In this law, it states that mass and energy are relative to each other. Mass energy formula explains how energy can be converted into mass and mass into energy.

The theory states that the amount of energy possessed by an object is equal to its mass multiplied by the square of the speed of light.

According to Einstein’s Theory, equivalent energy can be calculated using the mass (m) and the speed of light.

$$\begin{array}{l}E=mc^{2}\end{array}$$

E = equivalent energy

m = mass in kg

c = speed of light

$$\begin{array}{l}c\cong 3\times 10^{8}m/s\end{array}$$
