Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question about general relativity and time dilation. I found an expression for the time dilation around a sphere of radius R and mass m.

T=T0/(sqrt(1-2Gm/Rc^2))

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/relativ/gratim.html

Is there a way to calculate the time dilation for a different structure directly from the potential? Can I just substitute my potential in for Gm/R in the equation above?

Thanks,

Joe
