We all know the famous mass-energy relation E=mC^2,but my question is what does this really mean.I mean if I apply this equation for a normal practical application case e.g. burning of wood,the energy I will get from this combustion reaction will be equal to the mass I used multiplied by C^2.Is this how it is?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The second part of the question is what any of the combustion processes has to do with the speed of light ?

Please someone be quick to answer
