- I have read that depending on your distance from a gravitational source your flow of time is different.
I read that just a few feet difference in height would show a different rate of time and that was measurable. However, If the clock that is at a more elevated position it will be traveling through more space, is that what is responsible for the difference in the rate of time for that clock? I understand that clocks at different heights from the earths gravity field do experience different rates of the flow of time. I wish to know what is the cause of this difference.
