What follows is the result of (poor) communications with Trout.

Imagine a rocket (of length L) accelerated by a rocket at the back. Call the acceleration g. If the front of the rocket going at the same speed as the back of the rocket?
Nooo..
Due to the finite speed of light the back of the rocket has been accelerated for longer than the front.
1/ The front lags behind by a time difference of t=L/c.
2/ Knowing (Newton) v=u+gt we can say the difference in velocity is gL/c
3/ so the time dilation (gamma) will be 1/sqrt(1- (gL/c)^2/c^2)

Does this agree with GR?
A while back Brucep compared SR and GR time dilation - if I (or anyone) finds it - we can check.

The Pound-Rebka experiment is a tower sitting on the Earth with a uniform acceleration of g - so we should be able to pinch their analysis:-

Where I'm coming from:- ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_time_dilation )

QUOTE
Gravitational time dilation is the effect of time passing at different rates in regions of different gravitational potential; the lower the gravitational potential, the more slowly time passes. Albert Einstein originally predicted this effect in his theory of relativity and it has since been confirmed by tests of general relativity.

Going back to:-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pound%E2%80%93Rebka_experiment

Looking first at the GR factor

f_r = f_e * sqrt[ (1- 2GM/(c^2(R+h)))/(1- 2GM/(Rc^2))]

At first sight this seems to be saying g_top != g_bottom - whereas I'd sooner be approaching this from a gravitational potential POV if possible.

Time for fillet to slip more spam in. Never mind - we're all gonna die.

And here we have it:-

Using the principle of equivalence, Einstein concluded that the same thing holds in any gravitational field, that the rate of clocks R at different heights was altered according to the gravitational field g. When g is slowly varying, it gives the fractional rate of change of the ticking rate. If the ticking rate is everywhere almost this same, the fractional rate of change is the same as the absolute rate of change, so that:-

dR/dx=g=-dV/dx
for uniform field (which is what I wanted) -dV/dx=k=g
apparently a factor of c^2 wants to come back in here (I don't mind)
to give
R(x)=1-V(x)/c^2
since V(x)=kx // uniform field
R(x)= 1 - kx/c^2

IM GOING TO MAKE SOME SPAM SO THE|AT THE MODERATOR TAKES NOTICE

AS IT IT HE LOOOVES ME SOOOO MUCH PERHAPS HE WILL BAN ME AND THE BOT

LOL

R(x)= 1 - kx/c^2
after setting x= 0 I have to conclude
R(x)= R_0 - kx/c^2 //replacing some lost of constants or something
but the main point (I hope) is that for small accelerations dR/dx=-kx
Einstein seems (my imagination) to have been here and added in the higher orders later
(which I will not attempt during my annus bankruptus).

ACTUALLY, THIS IS WHAT GOT ME BANNED IN THE FIRST PLACE

If i may explain, i am missunderstood.

Several years ago, the forum went to s h i t and spammers were taking over.

I took upon myself ot challanghe these spammers, AND to MAKE MODS NOTICE/DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

SOMETHING WAS DONE, a new mod was promoted amd subsequently the new mod (rpenner) banned all the spammers/bots etc including MYSELF

I sacrificed MYSELF SO RPENNER COULD BE MOD AND HELP CLEAN UP THE FORUM. I DID THIS FROM MY OWN GOODWILL

I HAVE been on the run since, having to be constantly in hididng.

SO there u have.

I am syarting a new thread to explain everything

Thank you
