How to derive e=mc^2

  • #1
Hi,
I am very eager to know how to derive e=mc^2.
I am sure that you all would be knowing how to derive the world famous equation E=mc^2.i know the basics but still it is a tough job to explain that. But I am hoping that you would send me a reply as soon as possible. Thank you

do you know how to derive the time-dilation and mass-dilation equations for Special Relativity? are you comfortable with techniques of integration in calculus? and with concepts of classical physics (like momentum, force, work/energy)?

if you know that the center of mass conserves have a look at
Adel F. Antippa, "Inertia of energy and the liberated photon," Am.J.Phys. 44 841 (1976)
