We should also review our SI prefixes, which we will use a lot in our calculations: 

SI Prefixes
Factor Name Symbol
1024 yotta Y
1021 zetta Z
1018 exa E
1015 peta P
1012 tera T
109 giga G
106 mega M
103 kilo k
102 hecto h
101 deka da
10-1 deci d
10-2 centi c
10-3 milli m
10-6 micro µ
10-9 nano n
10-12 pico p
10-15 femto f
10-18 atto a
10-21 zepto z
10-24 yocto y

Now that we've reviewed some basics, let's work a simple problem together to see if we understand this concept of the relationship between energy and mass.
