Matter Tells Spacetime How to Curve
Lecture no. 17 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity
Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
The curvature of spacetime depends upon matter—and tidal effects. In this lecture, see how ordinary tidal effects reveal a simplified form of Einstein’s greatest discovery: the equation governing the curvature of spacetime by matter.
