Everybody knows e=mc2 But what are the units? Is e in ergs, btu, horsepower, etc. Is m in gms, tons, lbs, etc? Is c in km/sec, mph, inches/day, etc?
Asked by: Donald Hobbs
All the parameters are in SI units. e.g: e (in Joules), m (Kilograms) and c (meters/second). However you can convert into your favourite units, taking into account the proper relations in between.

'There is no inductive method which could lead to the fundamental concepts of physics. Failure to understand this fact constituted the basic philosophical error of so many investigators of the nineteenth century.'
