Hi Guys,

A question about the curvture of space-time by mass.

Where is the point of maximum curvature??

Is it at the centre of mass (i.e.. the middle of the body)

The reason I ask, is that when space-time curvature is shown visually it makes out like it is a flat bottomed "dent" in space-time. If this was the case it would mean surely that there is no curvature at the centre of mass.

Where am I going wrong with this thought process.

Thanks

Ginger
