Problem 15RQ

What occurs in the surrounding space when a massive object undergoes a change in its motion?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 15RQ Massive object creates a gravitational field surrounding it. Now we know that the gravitational field strength depends on the distance from the object causing the gravitational field. When the massive object moves, the distance from the massive object to the all points of the space will change. Hence the gravitational field strength of the space due to the object will also change. This change in the gravitational in the surrounding space will send a ripple in the space and causing a gravitational wave. Also, from the general theory of the relativity, we know that the gravity causes a change in the space time curvature of the space. So if the gravitational field strength changes, the spacetime curvature of the surrounding space will also change. And with the gravitational wave, there will an wave of changing space time, as the gravitation wave propagates through the space.
