What is an example of e=mc^2, with numbers? I have heard that the Hiroshima explosion only converted about one dime of matter to energy. Can anyone give me the actual numbers that would apply Einsteein's e=mc^2 to any real instance from a nuclear blast down to something smaller. For that matter, what are the units of measure used in the equation, ergs, grams and meters (cm?)/sec^2? Thanks for any enlightenment you can provide. My next recourse is th New York Time science question dept.
