Abstract

Einstein’s theory of general relativity describes the gravitational field around massive objects ( like Earth) as a curvature in the spacetime. But it leaves the following question unanswered; why is the spacetime curved by a mass? Through a theory that has been introduced recently, regarding a medium for a light propagation, a simple answer is introduced. It depends on redefining the rest energy for a massive object ( like a planet) as new form of kinetic energy. For a static and spherically symmetric object, with a specific radius(
