Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First post. Thank you for letting me be a part of the discussion.

My question is, can the Law of Conservation of Energy, http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/2/7/3/273abc16486177bf6cc4c8ec4a4a5fc9.png, be derived using E=MC2.

I understand that the E=MC2 can be derived using the LoCE and other formulas, but my question is, can the LoCE be derived from E=MC2 and other necessary formulas. My calculus is not so good these days, but my intuition says that the answer is yes and this is a relatively easy proof.

This question is a part of a larger thought experiment of mine.

Thanks,

Scott
