As I understand it, a way to look at E=mc^2 is to think of it as the energy required to accelerate a given amount of mass.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I also understand that mass warps space-time creating an acceleration (gravity) in objects near that mass. Is there a direct correlation between the energy required to accelerate an object and the potential energy (acceleration from gravity) created by the warping of space-time?

I apologize in advance for any bad assumptions I may have made above. I'm mostly an astro-physicist wannabe
