I am not a science student and i dont know to much information about astronomy. But i am really curious about Black hole.
Blackhole is found in outerspace. Its made of Black matters and hydrons. It have great gravitational pull and can suck everything that goes near to it. time is also slow near blackhole.
Is time affected by gravity??

The theory is that time is relative to where one is, the problem is that all time is is a unit of change. I am not a scientist, but I believe how they describe time is off. It may take more energy to cause change in a black hole, but I wouldn't think that the unit of measurement would need to be changed.

Time is affected by gravity. A clock at sea level ticks faster than a clock on the space station and a clock at sea level ticks slower that a submarine in an ocean trench. The closer you get to a black hole the longer the interval between tick and tock.

By these criteria I think my ex wife is a black hole. Time slows exponentially when I'm close to her and she sucks everything that goes near her too. She's also pretty dense.

Yeah be careful of big holes and getting sucked into them...or at least wear a condom.

I always wear a condom. I am wearing one right now.

Is time truly affected by gravity or is the device used to measure time affected? I could then argue that voltage affects the flow of time...

illusionofsleep: Is time truly affected by gravity or is the device used to measure time affected?

-------

Erimitus: I would say that time is affected by gravity and that the instrument used to measure time is affected by gravity.

Classical physics tells us that time is a measurement of the interval between tic and tock. Modern physics tells us that time is a dimension.

Time is a measurement of intervals is some fields of study and time is a dimension in other fields of study and, as I understand it, there is no definition of time that is applicable to all fields of study. And …and if we do not accept that there is no universal definition of time it will result in considerable confusion.

So we can look at time as either a measurement or a dimension and we have to ask which is applicable to our question (i.e. does gravity affect time?)

Time as a dimension:

Time is a dimension in which events are ordered from the past through the present and into the future.

Time as a measurement:

Time is a measure of durations of events and the intervals between events.

I am thinking that we should use time as a measurement of the interval between tic and tock in this context.

What do you think?

It is not clear to me how voltage (pressure) affects duration. The harder you push (i.e. the greater the force) the longer the duration??? Please explain. You will have to keep it simple if you want me to understand.
