this isnt a homework question, incidentally(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

All the foormulas for time dilation, relaitivsitc momentum, do they apply for non linear motion (circular/elliptical?) SO then that leads me to the question :

what kind of angular velocity would a planet require such that a stationary observer watching this planet from some distance, would observe relativistic effects (time dilation et al) such taht the deviation is significant. Could we handle this without resorting to vector calculus and the like?

I guess significant would mean something that deviates maybe more than 5% from the classical mechanical handling of the problem at hand.
