### Re: Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

Cool. Thanks to all... My cosmogonical framework is rigidifying~

### Re: Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

No. The depth determines the speed. Not the steepness. In the center there is no force, but you are still at the bottom of a well. Understood. So between the bottom of the well (dished, lowest point of the diagram) and the gravitational center of Earth, GTD does not continue to increase?... Or is t...

### Re: Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

I hadn't pondered the relationship between orbital velocity and gravitational time dilation, and appreciate the explications. (The 'rolling eyes' smiley was just 'deep clock' looking at her sister up on terra firma.) The gravity well model/diagram seems to hold the answer to gravitational time dilat...

### Re: Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

Very pretty...

...and interesting that it doesn't form a sharp point at middle Earth.

If this is a mathematical construction, what rounds the bottom of the well?

doogly wrote:No, the time dilation goes as the potential, not the force.

So, the central clock runs slow relative to the surface clock?

### Re: Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

LaserGuy says: "...The stuff above you does not contribute (I guess it technically does, but it does in such a way that the force exerted by the shell of of material at larger radius than yours will cancel out exactly..." This seems to get close to my question, but specifically, does the c...

### Re: Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

What are the two different frequencies ... ? The two clocks are matched for frequency while next to each other, and somewhere just above the surface of Earth. As soon as one is moved downward (on its way to the center of the planet), the strength of the gravitational field it is in increases; when ...

### Gravitational time dilation at the center of a planet...

What if we took one of two twinned cesium clocks to a void at the center of Earth where the gravitational force generated by the surrounding mass would be nullified by equal and opposite force; would the gravitational time dilation also be nullified, thus restoring synchrony between the two clocks' ...
