Why is C squared in the famous formula E=MC2?
Why is the constant C squared in Einstein's famous formula E=MC2?
I know there are supposed to be math reasons for this but doesn't it seem odd that the "constant" can even be theoretically squared?
If a spaceship traveled at the speed C squared it would instantly be transported back in time to before the Big Bang.
C is the speed of light. I have also been confused why C is even used in the formula, that too exponentially. Theoretically, travelling at the speed of light would make time travel possible. So this formula is supposed to be calculating the amount of energy spent by an object of mass 'm' to time travel, if there was such energy
Not sure what you mean. I am no maths wiz!
Isnt the formula saying how much energy exists in matter?
C is used as its supposed to be THE Constant. Why square the constant when it cant be squared?
Yes it's the energy formula. C is the constant whose value equals the speed of light.
The "speed of light" squared or (299,792,458 metres per second)^2.

How can the speed of light be theoretically squared in Einsteins equation ?Yes we all know C squared gives a new number in Einstein's equation. But squaring the speed of light even theoretically is theoretically impossible.

We all know how to recognize life, and death. I have heard that modern medical science does not understand why we age and die. Cellular structure and reproduction "should" theoretically go on and on. So why does it not?

If a color comes up 2 out of 12 spins how many would it theoretically come up per 27 spins?My son is working on math that is way beyond me now that am 49-have been out of school for so long. He spun a wheel with a number of colors 12 times and green came up twice and orange once. ...

Has Einstein's constant now been disproved by entanglement?The instantaneous transmission of information has now been proven by entanglement experiments. Does this mean the so called constant (speed of light) has been shown to be incorrect? Does entangled information exceed the speed of light? Is...

It is proven that time stops when you are moving at the speed of light. Time as we know it on earth is a man made notion, for it is really a measurement of distance - a revolution around once. Therefore it would be relative to where you were and how fast you are moving and not at all a...

Can we travel back in time without affecting the future?Quantum superposition holds that a physical system exists partly in all particular, theoretically possible states, which makes me think that we can theoretically go back in time and it would have no impact on the future because it is already a...
