Got Energy? E=mc.squared

Do you feel tired? Have you lost all your energy?

Not really, according to Einstein – we all have more energy than we can release in a lifetime.

E is Einstein Energy Quotion in joules
M is Mass measured in kilograms
C is the Speed of Light – approximate 300,000,000 meters per second

My mass is 77.18 kilograms (becoming marginally less daily – separate topic of latent success)

According to Albert Einstein, I am the container for 6.95 x 10 to the 18th, e+18, that is eighteen place holding zeros. 6,950,000,000,000,000,000.

This converts to the equivalent of 1.9e+12 kilowatt hours. See for other equivalent conversions.

According to the US Energy Information Administration, “In 2008, the “average” nuclear power plant generated about 12.4 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh). ”

Taking these calculations out one more level – I am the carrier of 155 nuclear power plants. (If my Microsoft Excel math is right.)

Apparently I do have enough potential energy.
