Am I the only person in the world who sees that E=mC2 is a special case of F=ma?

Einstein lived his last days not wearing socks. Perhaps he never wore them. That is beside the point. You are a special case, in my book as well.

Re: Yes

I don't wear socks very often. Maybe Albert was my long lost cousin.

I thought that was the point.

But F=ma is old. The only new thing is using the velocity of light (C) for a, where a=v2=C2.

I like F=ma. It's my favorite equation. I feel it should get more credit as the source for e=mC2

What you're saying is right. F=ma is the source of Einstein's equation and should be more widely credited as such.

no, probably not the ONLY one...

i think einstein made the connection, too... but his equation just got bigger exposure!

so i give thanks to you for spreading the word on F=ma. i mean, i probably wouldn't even remembered it if i hadn't heard it again from you... sorry mrs. maitland! (my high school physics teacher)
