Doubt on Einstein’s Mass Energy relation

Can you please derive the formula for mass-energy relation with brief explanation? How mass is converted into energy?

Why in equation E=Mc2, c (velocity of light)is taken?

Has it anything to do with mass-energy?

Please answer me.

Answer:

Mass is converted to energy in nuclear reactions – during nuclear fusion as well as fission.

 

The following link has the necessary details. Please go through it.
