Chapter 9: Einstein’s Theory of Gravitation

Einstein’s theory of Gravitation
Gravitational field is a warping of space-time

Forces replaced by bending of space-time

Warped space time affects the motion of light and object of mass

Black Holes
Come from supermassive stars collapsing at the end of their lives.

>1.5 solar mass

Star collapses until the gravitational force at the event horizon becomes so large that not even light can escape.

A larger black hole has less pull than a smaller black hole
