I was exactly a bit right and a bit wrong. Unlike you, I pointed out that a faster moving clock runs slower.
YOU had it completely backwards !
However, I didn't know that the gravitational effects were great enough to cancel that out, and make the space clock run faster. And neither did you. You got your reasoning completely wrong. And I quote :Xamonas Chegwé wrote:Change the relative velocities of two objects and their relative velocities through time change - this is real - clocks run slower on Earth than in geostationary satellites and this has to be constantly adjusted for.
No mention of gravity, the real reason why clocks run slower on Earth.
You've obviously read that clocks run slower on Earth, remembered that fact parrot fashion, but without understanding the reason why. I'm glad I've been able to help you.
I would have thought that thanks were in order, but never mind.
By the way, your attempt to gloss over getting it wrong, as inXamonas Chegwé wrote:And the gravitational effects are still relativity.
is a bit pathetic.
You never mentioned the gravitational effect till I enlightened you, so don't pretend that you knew it.
I should have known better than to respond to anything you write.
