T. Perez The correct answer to this question is Albert Einstein. He is a physicist, who coined the term. This is a formula, which correlates energy to mass. When he originally wrote the question, he wrote it as m=L/c2. The L represented Lagrangian, which is a general form of energy.

Each letter in the equation represents something. The E represents energy and it is measured in Joules. This measurement is measured as kg x m2/s2, which stands for kilograms times meters squared per seconds squared. M stands for the mass of an object. Lastly, C is a representation of the speed of light.    Alber Einstein. It means that if on object of mass m moves with the square of speed of light than energy is produced    #### Michele

Albert Einstein was the first to invent E=mc2. The energy E of a system is equal to its mass m multiplied by c2, the speed of light squared.    #### rrtytr

The equation E=mc2 was formulated by the great physicist Albert Einstein. Matter contains energy. To quantify this relationship, equation E=mc2 had been formulated. It states the correlation of energy and mass (the sum total of matter that forms a body or an object).

Energy is denoted by E and its unit of measurement is Joule. Mass is denoted by m and its unit of measurement is kilograms or grams. c is the speed of light.

When mass of an object is multiplied by the square of speed of light, then we get the energy contained within to object.    Search for Google images Select a recommended image
