Besides, his formuls is a general form that deals with variable quantities besides the frequency that is also variable.

Oh please! That's like saying that the formula of distance/velocity= time isn't credible for telling you how long it takes to drive a 10 miles at a 60 mph because it doesn't take into account the mpg of the car!

I thoght about the simplest formula for determing the energy of an event.

So I originally thought that distance x time would be the answer, but that is not quite right.

Two vehicles moving at the same speed, are using the same amount of energy, tight? Wrong!

A truck and a car moving at the same speed would not be equal as far as energy is concerned because the truck would be using 'more' energy.

So in an energy formula, mass has to be included.

So in an energy/light formula, the frequency or wavelength has to be included.

But

*isn't* an energy/light formula, it is a mass/energy formula.

is an energy/light formula. which give the amount of energy a single photon of a known frequency will have.

, on the other hand, is the energy equivalence of a given mass. And the fact that it has c in it, and c is the speed of light, and light has a frequency is just a matter of free association and has no meaning beyond that.

c is just the

*speed* of light, and nothing more(In fact, if you called it "maximum speed of information transfer", it would make no difference. ). c is just shorthand for

Because

says nothing about what

*form* that energy takes. It could be as light or, as in the case of a portion of th energy released in nuclear reactions, as kinetic energy of the remaining mass.

And even when some or all of it is converted to electromagnetic energy, that energy can be at any frequency. Its just a matter of how many photons are emitted. So frequency is irrelevant to E=mc˛. Just like MPG is irrelevant to how long it takes to drive a given distance.
