**Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: what is the rate of time dilation in Einstiens 1g lift with no windows**

Hi all,

yes Halc, sorry I wasn't clear.

I am wondering if its possible to calculate the time dilation/rate of a light clock in Einstein's classic lift with no windows accelerating at 1g vs one stationary/not accelerating far away from any gravitational effects.

Similar as to how you would calculate/compare the rate of a stationary clock at sea level on Earth vs one stationary/not accelerating far away from any gravitational effects, as per the standard gravitational time dilation equations.

I read somewhere the centripetal/centrifugal acceleration of a mass correlated to time dilation equivalent to the linear velocity of the body in question, but I am not sure how accurate this information is, or if its possible to mathematically relate it to the question I am posing.
