Acceleration and twin paradox question
In the twin paradox, the twin that experiences the most acceleration does not age as much. If I synchronize two digital watches, then put one in a centrifuge for a long time, one watch will experience much more acceleration than the other. If they remain synchronized, why is the acceleration inside a centrifuge different from the acceleration if one watch had been in a space ship?

They won't remain synchronized, the experiment has been done.
