Introduction to General Relativity

Having finished in work in the study of Special or Inertial frames of reference. Einstein turned his attention to changing or accelerated motion. As mentioned earlier, Acceleration is the change in the velocity of an object in motion (Refer Classical Mechanics). When an body's speed is constantly increasing, it is said to be in Uniform Acceleration.

In 1916, Einstein gave his famous relation between Gravity and Accelerated motion which is mentioned under The General Theory of Relativity. The major predictions of General Relativity are :

1. Gravity is nothing but accelerated motion.
2. Light is massless bending of light in Strong gravitational field is explained by Space Time dent.
3. Even The elliptical orbits of outer planets is explained by Space time dent.
