Publication of Einstein’s article "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?"

On November 21, 1905, Albert Einstein published his article “Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?” in “Annalen der Physik” journal.

In this article he revealed the relationship between energy and mass that would eventually lead to the famous mass-energy equivalence formula E=mc2.

Actually in the article this equation is not originally written as a formula but as a sentence in German saying that "if a body releases the energy L in the form of radiation, its mass diminishes by L/V2". Einstein uses V to mean the speed of light in a vacuum and L to mean the energy lost by a body in the form of radiation.
