    E = mc2, equation in German-born physicist Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity that expresses the fact that mass and energy are the same physical entity and can be changed into each other. In the equation, the increased relativistic mass (m) of a body times the speed of light squared (c2) is equal to the kinetic energy (E) of that body.

    It is a description of how matter and energy are the SAME THING. Think of matter as very very concentrated energy. So...a very small amount of matter...when converted completely to energy..is a HUGE AMOUNT. The equation was discovered by Einstein and is rather well known. Mass times the square of the speed of light.

    I'm not sure where the speed of light comes into this (though I have an idea), but basically it's saying that matter is "frozen" energy and that mass and energy are different forms of the same thing, with mass multiplied by a constant (the speed of light, squared).
