mass-en|er|gy equation
mass-en|er|gy equation «MAS EHN uhr jee»,
an equation expressing the relation of mass and energy, formulated by Albert Einstein in 1905: E = mc2; Einstein equation. E = the energy in ergs; m = the mass in grams; c = the velocity of light in centimeters per second. »

What happens in the Bevatron confirms Einstein's famous mass-energy equation which says that energy can be converted into mass and mass into energy (New York Times).
