Problem 37E

Comparing Einstein’s and Newton’s theories of gravitation, how can the correspondence principle be applied?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 37E Solution 37E Step 1 : Einstein’s theory of gravity In general theory of relativity, it is explained that the gravity is due to distortion of spacetime caused due to presence of the matter or energy . A massive object in the spacetime wraps itself in the spacetime which causes gravitational fields Newton's theory of gravity Newton’s law states that every mass attracts every other mass in the universe and the gravitational force between the two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them Step 2 : Equivalence principle states that the behavior of system described by the theory of quantum mechanics must agree with classical physics for large energies and large orbits. This means new theories must agree with old theories for larger energies
