This maybe not related.
Since the Dutch population is active in here, I have a question.

Today I was touring around Haarlem, it's a beautiful city but there's this green phone booths stack statue in the city, I loved everything i saw today about it, but still I don't understand why is e=mc2 written wrong "e=cm2" ?

    E is actually a new unit which means 1 square centimeter

    That is, 1 E = 0.0001 sq. meter
    (Or 0.00107639 sq. ft)

    @bcye no you can't - the c^2 is its own unit, squaring the mass would give an incorrect answer

    I wonder what new unit would be one square inch..

    And is the US inch the same as the UK inch ?

    Or is it like the difference between US and UK Nautical Miles..
