As per Maxwell's equations the speed of light is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

c = 1/√(permeability X permittivity)

I find that both permeability and permittivity have pi in their calculations. Since spacetime is not flat, the value of pi would change due to the curvature of space near large masses. Does this mean that the speed of light would also be altered by the curvature of spacetime?
