Brian Greene (email@example.com), Professor of
Physics and Professor of Mathematics, Department of Physics,
Columbia University, New York City, New York, wrote in his homage
to Albert Einstein entitled
That Famous Equation And You; E = mc2 at 100:
"The standard illustrations of Einstein's equation - bombs and
power stations - have perpetuated a belief that E = mc2
special association with nuclear reactions and is thus removed
from ordinary activity.
This isn't true. When you drive your car, E = mc2 is at
the engine burns gasoline to produce energy in the form of motion,
it does so by converting some of the gasoline's mass into energy,
in accord with Einstein's formula. When you use your MP3 player, E
= mc2 is at work. As the player drains the battery to
energy in the form of sound waves, it does so by converting some
of the battery's mass into energy, as dictated by Einstein's
formula. As you read this text, E = mc2 is at work. The
in the eye and brain, underlying perception and thought, rely on
chemical reactions that interchange mass and energy, once again in
accord with Einstein's formula."
