I can't figure out how to simplify the equation E2=m2c4+p2c2 to Emγc2! This is driving me crazy trying to! How do you?

It is almost impossible to decypher what you meant. Please read in the site how to properly use LaTeX to write mathematics here.

Well, the simplification is impossible unless you got some other relations between E,m,p,c and γ. This is probably a physics problem, in that case it belongs in the physics forum.

Finally, Emγc2 is not an equation, it is a term. An equation should have an =.
