True, after you do the calculation, but initself not a very helpfull number. In this case, its sort of an intermediate step in a calculation, rather than a usefull result in itself. Also kind of confusing. > I assumed that everyone who would read my document did know about E=mc^2 and > thus could calculate it (as you could see the calculation was rather > straight forward. Only after you remenber the units of measure that are to be used in the equation. An exaple WITH UNITS does help a lot. Kelly
