Novice here. Like many folks before me, I am intrigued by Einstein's Theory of Relativity.

I am currently puzzled by Einstein's famous equation E=MC2.

Standard physics definition of Energy is Mass times distance squared over time squared.

How does this apply when you are calculating total energy in a mass.

For example, a nuclear explosion should release most of the eneregy in the core of a nuclear device.

Has this been calculated and does it confirm Einstein's theory.

Alternative calculation would be loss of weight in rods used in nuclear reactor. Energy released should be close to Einstein's formula.

I may be totally confused about what I am saying.

If so, point me in right direction.
