E = mcc

E = mcc

I mentioned Einstein's famous equation in class yesterday, inspired by some reference, and none of them knew what the equation meant, so I explained each part of the equation.

I then asked the students what the equation meant.

They informed me that they'd just learned its meaning. From me.

I then explained that I now wanted practical implications, e.g., the military implication that a small amount of mass could release enormous amounts of energy . . . and blow up a large city!
