A radius is required for this relativistic formula:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]t=\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-\frac{2GM}{Rc^2}}}[/tex]

However, I notice that some objects are not spherical. Because of this, I am unsure of how to calculate gravitational time dilation for different shapes.

Could somebody help me with this and provide examples for different shapes (like a brick or a heavy stop sign)?
