- Summary
- Is there any speed-of-time gradient there?

Hi,

Could you please help me to clarify the following problem? In the gravitational field of a mass, the force on a body in steady state comes from the gradient of the gravitational potential - or the gradient of speed of time. But what about accelerated reference frames? I assume that there is no speed-of-time gradient, right? However, we state that the two type of field are indistunguishable, ie. the same.
