7.Which of the following are predictions of Special or General Relativity?_X__ The clock in a spaceship traveling at a high velocity with respect to the Earth will runmore slowly than a clock on Earth___ If you are in a spaceship moving at 0.9 the speed of light and shine a flashlight in thedirection of travel, you will measure the speed of the light beam to be 0.1c_X__ Time moves more slowly as you approach the event horizon of a Black Hole_X__ Mass creates “warps” in the space-time fabric of the universe
8.Compare the escape velocity from the surface of the Earth for a hydrogen atom(mass = 3 x 10-­‐24grams) and for the Space Shuttle (mass = 107grams).
9.To the best of our knowledge, neutron degeneracy can only support a mass upto 3MSun. If mass is added to a neutron star and this limit is exceeded, whatprevents the star from collapsing?
