    Within the framework of General Relativity in one of its most simple forms, the Schwarzschild solution, a very interesting paradox can be proposed involving the conservation of work / energy. It’s a puzzle for the Relativity buff. In this short discussion I outline this energy redshift paradox, and the implications for an attempted solution.

    correct me if im wrong but in the article erich states that acceleration is dx/dt^2 i think he forgot to raise the d to square because the notation for second deravative is d^2x/dt^2.
