According to general relativity, objects in a strong uniform gravitational field experience time slower that objects in a weak uniform gravitational field.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does this mean that my feet, being closer to the earth that my head, are younger than my head when I die?

If this is correct could someone oblige me in showing me the maths involved should it not be to complicated. Or at least link a source to be where I can learn these calculations for myself.

Kindest Regards,
