Einstein's Equation - Let's do the Math...
E = energy (measured in Joules)
m = mass (measured in kilograms)
c = speed of light (186,282 miles/second)
scientific analysis uses SI (international system of units) which is 300,000,000 meters per second
my weight loss so far, 94 pounds (309lbs-215lbs=94lbs)
1 lb-453.6g, therefore 94 lbs x 453.6g/lb =
42,738.4 grams = 42.74kg (kilograms)
E= (42.74kg)(3.00 × 108m/s)2
E= 7.76 × 1018 J
3.84 × 1018 J = 3,840,000,000,000,000,000
Everyone is vaguely familiar with TNT. It is the explosive always selected by the Coyote to wipe out the Road Runner - not that that has ever worked out too well for the coyote!)
1 kiloton of TNT = 4.18×1012 Joules or rather 4,184,000,000,000 Joules.
My weight loss so far = 3.84 x 1018 J
3.84 x 1018 J x 1 kT TNT/ 4.18 x 1012 J = 918,660 kilotons of TNT
In my case, the this energy was harmlessly released into the atmosphere as water vapor and Carbon Dioxide. IS SCIENCE COOL OR WHAT?
A Fun Way of Understanding E=mc2
The Laurentide Ice Sheet was a massive sheet of ice that covered millions of square miles, including most of Canada and a large portion of the northern United States, multiple times during Quaternary glacial epochs. It last covered most of northern North America between c. 95,000 and c. 20,000 years before the present day. At times, its southern margin included the modern sites of New York City and Chicago, and then followed quite precisely the present course of the Missouri River up to the northern slopes of the Cypress Hills, beyond which it merged with the Cordilleran Ice Sheet. The ice coverage extended approximately as far south as 38 degrees latitude in the mid-continent.The maximum extent of glacial ice in the north polar area during the Pleistocene period included the vast Laurentide ice sheet in eastern North America.This ice sheet was the primary feature of the Pleistocene epoch in North America, commonly referred to as the ice age. It was up to 2 mi (3.2 km) thick in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada but much thinner at its edges where nunataks were common in hilly areas. It created much of the surface geology of southern Canada and the northern United States, leaving behind glacially scoured valleys, moraines, eskers and glacial till. It also caused many changes to the shape, size, and drainage of the Great Lakes. As but one of many examples, near the end of the last ice age, Lake Iroquois extended well beyond the boundaries of present day Lake Ontario, and drained down the Hudson River into the Atlantic Ocean.
