According to Einstein's Gravitational Time Dilation, if an oscillating physical system is elevated to a height H above the Earth then in oscillates at a higher frequency than the same system at ground level.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

According to Planck's relation between Energy and frequency this must mean that the oscillator at height H must have more energy, and thus by E=mc^2, must have more mass than the identical oscillator at ground level.

Is this true?
