## Einstein's Mass-Energy Equation: Also known as

**Einstein's Mass-Energy Equation** is usually known as **Einstein's Equation**, but there are a number of such equations that Einstein deduced.

However, this is the most famous one, and has caught the imagination of the general public.

Hence, if you refer to **Einstein's Equation** at a party, for example, everyone will know which one you mean, and it's this one.

Some sources refer to it boringly as the **Mass-Energy Equation**
