Suppose I have a toroidal tube, in which I lock a lucky/unlucky mouse.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Then I start spinning the torus [of radius ##r##] around its center with some velocity ##\beta##.

Then the centrifugal acceleration felt by the mouse due to rotation is given by some special relativistic maths:

[itex]a= \frac{\beta^2}{r (1 - \beta^2)}[/itex]

This acceleration can be seen as a gravitational acceleration.

How would I translate this acceleration into gravity of GR?
