Abstract

Spacetime tells matter how to move, and matter tells spacetime how to curve.
Learning Outcomes:
• Why gravity can be seen as a curvature of spacetime.
• That Einstein’s field equations describe how matter curves spacetime.
• How Sir Arthur Eddington verified Einstein’s theory of general relativity by measuring the change in position of stars during a solar eclipse.
