Solution 6E If two clocks are placed,a c in gravitational field ,which varies in strength ,the two clocks will not tick at the same rate.A clock at the bottom of the a mountain will run more slowly than a clock at the top of a mountain,the reason is the gravitational gradient between top and bottom of the mountain is called gravitational time dilation Generally GM the clock at rest in strong gravitational field run more slowly by a factor 1+ c2r than in a weaker field
