I was wondering how you would calculate the deltaT'(would it be correct to word deltaT' as change in time change?) for this example: (this is not a HW question)
observer A is at earth. observer B fly's 10 light years away at .5c to a nonrotating black hole 1 million times the mass of earth's star. B does a half orbit around the black hole at a distance of 1.1 times the swartschild radius. During the orbit B increase his velocity to stay in orbit and then returns home at .5c.
how much time has passed for B compared to A on the trip to the black hole?
how much time passed for B compared to A during the orbit?
how much total time passed for B compared to A?
I drew an illustration and put it as an attachment.
This is NOT a HW question. I simply made the example to give some life to the problem. if you don't show how to solve the problem, I wont care. I am really interested in how time dilation is effected by velocity and gravity at the same time. any and all contributions of knowledge or ideas on this subject are greatly appreciated . thanks in advance!!!
edit: Neglect earths gravity for any time dilation.
