    Welcome to the PF.

    Could you please be more specific? Where did you see that equation?

    If instead you mean the equation E = mc^2, then m is mass in that equation.

    If you mean how to "solve for m", because m is multiplied by c^2, and you want to get m by itself, divide both sides by c^2. From E= mc^2, m= E/c^2.
