A clock that moves in a polygonal path is an accelerated clock, correct? It appears that such a clock is usually analyzed using equations derived for inertial clocks. 1. What is the justification for using inertial equations to analyze an accelerating clock? 2. Has anyone used general relativity to analyze the accelerating clock?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
