The correct answer to this question is Albert Einstein. He is a physicist, who coined the term. This is a formula, which correlates energy to mass. When he originally wrote the question, he wrote it as m=L/c2. The L represented Lagrangian, which is a general form of energy.

Each letter in the equation represents something. The E represents energy and it is measured in Joules. This measurement is measured as kg x m2/s2, which stands for kilograms times meters squared per seconds squared. M stands for the mass of an object. Lastly, C is a representation of the speed of light.

Alber Einstein. It means that if on object of mass m moves with the square of speed of light than energy is produced

Albert Einstein was the first to invent E=mc2. The energy E of a system is equal to its mass m multiplied by c2, the speed of light squared.

The equation E=mc2 was formulated by the great physicist Albert Einstein. Matter contains energy. To quantify this relationship, equation E=mc2 had been formulated. It states the correlation of energy and mass (the sum total of matter that forms a body or an object).

Energy is denoted by E and its unit of measurement is Joule. Mass is denoted by m and its unit of measurement is kilograms or grams. c is the speed of light.

When mass of an object is multiplied by the square of speed of light, then we get the energy contained within to object.
