Assuming a system with relatively small but non-negligable mass falling from infinity to a maximally massive black hole;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would there be a maximum possible coordinate velocity below c ????

Is it possible to do an approximate calculation for this?

A ballpark figure??

If there is a limit, what is the physics behind it?

A related question : Is there a minimal dilation factor for the clock of a Schwarzschild observer at infinity, independant of the mass of the gravitating body???

Thanks
