Post E=mc² is wrong?
The distinguished physicists on BookTalk and a few others are keenly aware of this, but the general public is not. Thus, I burst your bubble... :close_tema:

Post Re: E=mc² is wrong?
Someone must have blown the geek whistle before filming this.
It isn't wrong so much as it is not complete.
As one who would have come running if I had heard said whistle I point out that for the observant among the BT family this is not news. When I posted E=MC2 derived from Newtons Law of Motion, my paper was based on Kinetic Energy and yielded the term
E=MC2 - M(subzero)C2. I believe this translates to the additiona factors shown if approached as an integral but the discussion is complicated by the difference between kinetic energy and energy. My derivation was kinetic energy de facto as a result of starting with one of the laws of motion. To me the brain twister is when you manipulate the equation (in simplified form) and realize that Mass is equal to Energy divided by the speed of light squared. Is there anyway to do that and have mass (matter) generated?

Oh, the joy.

Beware of quantum ducks, quark, quark.
