As Einstien stated that if a human being can travel at the rate of light,he will become older slowly. My question is" does gravitational force has any thing to do with our body getting old"?

No, the faster you travel through space the slower time passes. Time is RELATIVE to speed, hence Einstein's theory of relativity.

    thats what i want to ask.I will present an example.Suppose two friends of the age of 20 years are there. one goes to travel space at the rate of light for 50 years,when he returns,he finds his friend of 70 years of age but the space person is of only 30 years.How???please elaborate

    You just gave me 2 thumbs up for a perfect answer- Why?. READ IT AGAIN. The faster you travel the SLOWER time moves. This is a proven fact. The atomic clocks on our GPS satellites must be continually "adjusted" to Earth time. They run slower than clocks on the ground because the satellites are traveling at 17,000 mph.

    The closer you travel to the speed of light the slower TIME moves for the person on the spaceship.

Are human beings given a chance to revive their original status of life with the help of revealed scriptures?

Reading or hearing of such transcendental literatures helps one become liberated even in the conditional state of material existence. All the Vedic literatures aim at devotional service to The Supreme Personality of Godhead, and as soon as one is fixed upon this point, he at once becomes liberated from conditional life. The material gross and subtle forms are simply due to the conditioned soul's ignorance and as soon as he is fixed in the devotional service of the Lord, he becomes eligible to be freed from the conditioned state. This devotional service is transcendental attraction for the Supreme on account of His being the source of all pleasing humors.

Which is the lightest metal that acts opposite to gravity ?

It is not possible for any metal (or anything for that matter!) to act opposite to gravity.
Everything has a weight (effect of gravitational pull on a mass), and is pulled towards another mass (in this case Earth) but many things are ligher than air, so they will float away from the earth until the air becomes so thin that its boyant effect is no longer stronger than the gravitational effect, and the objet can rise no further.

Gravitational force goes on decreasing towards the center of the earth.why?

If a free body could be positioned at decreasing distances from the center of the earth, the mass of the earth would become more distributed around the free body, until at the very center of the earth the net gravity on the body would be zero. At this point the mass of the earth (and the force of gravity) would be uniformly distributed in all directions.

You are wearing a dress of mass 150g. how much force are you exerting on the dress?do not foeget the state of direction?


OK, firstly, Newton's third law states:
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Hence, the force will be exerted in the direction of the dress, away from her body.


I know the gravitational force varies over the planet, but i live in south africa, her we use it as 9.81m/s2.

0.150 x 9.81 = 1.474N of force exerted in the opposite direction of the dress on the body.

Hope this can be of help. Please be so kind to let me know if this was what you were looking for.

Kind regards

Big cliff height measurment?

You could do a bit of research as i can't remember the math's from my college days, but, it is possible to calculate the distance something travels by using its rate of descent against the time it takes to reach the ground, for instance, if gravity is measured at 9.81N/m per sec squared, then an object must speed up at the same rate from standstil every time unless the earths gravitational pull changed. If you then timed how long it takes to hit the ground you could do a simple calculation offsetting the rate of descent against time which would then give your distance. The calculation is - distance = speed x time, but you would need to factor in the the rate of change in the speed of the object from standstill to finish which is the bit i can't remember.
