Equation (7) is the general field equation which resolves the incompleteness of Newton's gravitational field equation.
In this case the scalar potential [psi] of the gravitational field in CTG is the characteristic of scalar field associated with the flow of gravitons, and is proportional to the difference between the energy density of the graviton flux at the point where the potential is determined, and the energy density of the graviton flux at infinity.
Einstein's theory is largely untested in such strong gravitational fields.
In this paper, we develop a physical model of pulsars, through which we propose an alternative explanation for neutron stars to emit the Dirac-delta-shape pulse-like radio frequency radiation and the Lorentzian shape oscillating X-rays, in terms of the 5D gravitational field shielding theory and the self-gravitating oscillations of neutron stars.
In addition to probing the gravitational field of Phobos during its close approach, Mars Express will be making measurements of how the solar wind influences the moon's surface.
GR also predicts that gravitational fields alter the rates of time passing at different depths of a gravitational field.
A black hole is a region of space in which the gravitational field is so powerful that nothing can escape it.
We studied the neutron quantum states in the potential well formed by the Earth's gravitational field and a horizontal mirror.
My bottom is so big it's got its own gravitational field -- Carol Vorderman.
Its gravitational field is thought to be so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape it.
As the craft escapes Earth's gravitational field, however, it enters the Sun's gravitational field.
Eventually it slowed to 18,450 mph - too slow to escape Earth's gravitational field.
