    E(Nd6)=3.5N

    This is a shot is the dark:

    Centrifical force in the millions of newtons generated by the earth's axis?

    Does Nd6 represent Knight to d6?

    I'm thinking Nd6 refers to neodymium in group 6 of the lanthanoid metals.

    If so, might not E refer to Electrons and N neutrons?

    Or perhaps E is energy in Newtons?

    I'm not sure, bus aside from a fairly obvious chess misdirection, Nd seems to be most consistent with neodymium.

    I cannot find any reference to 3.5 in wikipedia though.
