I Gravitational time dilation

  1. May 4, 2016 #1
    If a planet has gravity that is 3,000 m/s^2 instead of 9.8 m/s^2, would time passage be significantly different, or what would one second on earth be compared to one second on that planet?

    Gravitational time dilation depends on the gravitational potential.

    But you can find the potential by knowing that it's 3000 m/s^2?

    No.
