• Obviously it's correct. It's been proven and re proven millions of times. A huge amount of other maths principles and equations are based on or use this formula in some way.

• The formula is actually wrong. It has been proven to be incorrect. It is very close to the correct formula and it is still used for approximations.

• Point taken, good debate. I still have to say though the difference between the 'approximation' and the completely exact result is negligible in most cases.

• thanks for the mho! 😊

• Of course, it's not wrong. The over 200,000 Japanese in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who were killed (many of whom were vaporized) in August 1945 can attest to the equation's correctness.

• by the way, be careful how you ask questions and poll. Almost certainly your poll results are wrong; I mis-voted.
