    I would like to ask native speakers of English how Ainsteins famaous equation "E = mc2" is pronounced.

    Re: E= mc2

    We usually pronounce it "E equals M C squared".

    Re: E= mc2

    Thank you very much, rewboss

    I would also like to know similarly " E = mgh = 1/2mv2" and "y = m3 * t4"

    Thank you very much.

    Re: E= mc2

    Well, as you have written the first equation, it's ambiguous. What does it mean?

    E = mgh = (1/2)mv²
    E = mgh = 1/(2mv²)
    ...or something else?

    I think the other equation is "Y equals M cubed times T to the power of four".

    Oh sorry, I would like to know the pronouciation of "E = mgh = (1/2)mv²"
    Because it is difficult for me

    Re: E= mc2

    I would say: E equals M G H equals one-half times M V squared.

    You could also write it like this:

    Code:
          mv²
    E=mgh=---
           2
    and then it would be: E equals M G H equals M V squared over two.

    Re: E= mc2

    Great!!! Thank you very much, rewboss.

    I will try an example. Please corret as necessary.

    x 7
    Y = 3 * t 5 * -----
    4

    Y eauals three times t to the power of 5 times x to the power of seven over four ?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: E= mc2

    The eauation above hasn't appeared well

    I mean " Y = 3 * t5 * x 7 / 4

    That would look like this:

    Code:
         5   7/4
    Y=(3t )(x   )
    If that's the equation you're trying to describe, you got it right.

    Re: E= mc2

    Oh, I meant

    Y=(3 * t5)(1/4 * x7 )
