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

Let m be a mass, equivalent to energy E such, that E=mc[itex]^{2}[/itex].

Does it follow that c is the cosmic speed limit?

======================================

To say the above with more words:

1) m is a mass

2) in some process, it is established that through removal/vanishing/anihilation/etc of m, energy E is released

3) it is established that E can be expressed as E= mc[itex]^{2}[/itex].

What are the implications of such energy-mass relationship? Does it follow that c must be the cosmic speed limit? What other, no matter how insignificant, implications does E= mc[itex]^{2}[/itex] have on the parameter c?

Regards
