General Relativity 1  Introduction of a New Idea Speaker(s): Michael Burns
Abstract: We shift our ideas from Newton’s law of gravity to a new set of equations that describe how gravity is a consequence of the curvature of spacetime.
Learning Outcomes: • John Michell and his hypothetical object called a dark star. • How to determine the mass of a planet required for the escape velocity of an object to be the speed of light. • Einstein’s Equivalence Principle. Date: 01/08/2006  9:00 am
