rather than the far easier Newtonian gravity.
Do you think it might be sufficient to account for the observed effects?
The equations of GR take into account all of this and they do provide measurable differences from Newtonian gravity.
Gravity is not a form of energy. Were it to be so then gravity would provide a perpetual and inexhaustible source of energy, seeing as, as far as we know, the mass that produces the gravity does not decay as a result of doing so.
I don't know offhand Vern, that sounds like the difference between Newtonian mechanics and relativity. Can you give a pointer to something to look at in more detail?
A simple example of why this should be so is gravitational waves: a system generating gravitational waves decreases its motion as it radiates these waves, which is what you would expect if the waves carried away energy.
I know you say it. I haven't seen it demonstrated yet.
I have known for a long time that it is impossible to produce a model of black hole creation via an accretion disk when you include relativity phenomena. Some universities have produced studies of this and concluded the same thing.I'll research for the studies. It's been awhile since I saw it.
Vern. Take a look at this are black holes forbidden math
The consensus seems to be that GR does take into account the affect that gravity has upon gravity. I still haven't seen the details of how this works. Simple arithmetic says it can't work. But GR ain't simple.
The equation for acceleration contains time as an element. Stars in galaxies experience acceleration toward the galactic centre. Massive objects in a gravity field experience the passage of time as being slower than if the gravity field were not there.So it seems that gravity would have a negative affect upon gravity so that it would not follow a linear increase as mass increases.Time dilation due to gravity should then be considered when calculating the expected speed of galactic rotation. What am I missing?
No centrifugal force is generated when you rotate at the same rate that the space rotates.
