Can anyone help me to derive the most famous equation of Einstein, E=MC^2
Nobody can help you better than Einstein himself. He wrote a very nice book suitable for anyone who understands basic algebra.Can anyone help me to derive the most famous equation of Einstein, E=MC^2
You do realise that the above paper I referenced was an English translation of Einstein's 4th Annus Mirabilis paper that embodied part of the work in that text. In fact the translation has maintained the notion Einstein used in 1905.Nobody can help you better than Einstein himself. He wrote a very nice book suitable for anyone who understands basic algebra.
Relativity, the Special and General Theory (A clear explanation that anyone can understand)
See the attached jpg picture of the front cover.
He provides a very simple derivation of E=mc^2
Nope, didn't realize that, but now I do.You do realise that the above paper I referenced was an English translation of Einstein's 4th Annus Mirabilis paper that embodied part of the work in that text. In fact the translation has maintained the notion Einstein used in 1905.

Apologies Steve, I think I came across a little brash in my previous post.Nope, didn't realize that, but now I do.
No problem. You pointed out some good information.Apologies Steve, I think I came across a little brash in my previous post.

I should actually have said here, "the translation has maintained the notation Einstein used in 1905."the translation has maintained the notion Einstein used in 1905.
In a vacuum! Otherwise, this is not true.equipped with the knowledge that light ALWAYS travels at the speed of light
Also, we should remember that there are some recent theories that suggest that even the value of c in vacuum is not truely constant!In a vacuum! Otherwise, this is not true.

Yes, I forgot to point out this whole proof should happen in a vacuum (theoretically)...In a vacuum! Otherwise, this is not true.

I wouldn't be surprised. In a universe where every motive quantity is in reference to a particular inertial frame, why should we have one variable that is universally constant?Also, we should remember that there are some recent theories that suggest that even the value of c in vacuum is not truely constant!
