Surprising Velocity Effects
Gravity and Acceleration

The fact that there are velocity effects on gravity may not come as a surprise now that you know that space-time curvature is the root cause of gravity. When you view objects moving linearly on a curved surface, you will expect to observe non-linear motion, depending from where you view it.

The effects of movement on gravity can be expressed as part of the gravitational acceleration equations. This page and its download express the acceleration equations in a "quasi-Newtonian" format, probably the most "engineering-like" representation possible!

This format allows you as engineer to clearly spot and understand the differences between relativistic acceleration and Newton’s acceleration. Learn more about the fascinating aspect of relativistic gravity by reading the attached pdf file (link below).
