Just seeking a bit of guidance if I may ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If Lambda 1 is the time dilation caused by a gravitational field (ie proper time outside field/proper time inside field for static observers), and Lambda 2 is the usual time dilation under special relativity for a moving body (both lambda's >= 1), how should I combine them for a moving particle in a gravitational field, is is additive, multiplicative or some other combo ?
