4 Event horizon r S Karl Schwarzschild 1873 - 1916
5 Far from the black hole, centered at r = 0, the Schwarzschild metric approaches the geometry of flat spacetime We can therefore interpret the symbol t as the time measured by someone far from the hole ds 2 = c 2 (1 r s / r ) dt 2 dr 2 (1 r s / r ) r 2 d ϕ 2

6 r S Consider an observer at a fixed point with radial coordinate r from the black hole, i.e., with dr = 0, and d φ = 0. The elapsed time at a fixed r is given by d τ = ds / c = dt 1 r s r We see that the elapsed time is less than the elapsed time for someone very far from the black hole

8 In this spacetime, time is unwarped , but space is. What is the meaning of r ? The radial parameter r is defined so that r = C /2 π where C is the circumference of a circle around the wormhole
9 The proper radial distance from the wormhole’s throat at r = a to another point r = b

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
