Space bending

  1. May 27, 2014 #1
    Hi! I was wondering that if you could put enough electricity into a superconducting coil if it would be powerful enough to bend space?

    Spacetime is bent by any concentration of energy. So, any amount is "enough".

    Space-time bending is not the same thing as space bending. Neither one implies the other. This of course an issue of terminology, as the OP may have really intended to say space-time, but nonetheless this piece of terminology is very critical conceptually.

    Also, how much does space bend per Tesla?
