Test of General Relativity Theory by Investigating the Conservation of Energy in a Relativistic Free Fall in the Uniform Gravitational Field

Authors: Jaroslav Hynecek

This paper investigates the General Relativity Theory (GRT) by studying the accelerated motion simulating the relativistic free fall of a small test body in a uniform gravitational field. The paper compares the predictions of energy loss, perhaps by radiation, in an accelerated motion obtained from the GRT and from the Metric Theory of Gravity (MTG). It is found that the gravitational mass dependence on velocity in GRT is not correct, because it predicts a negative loss of energy while the MTG predicts correctly a positive loss. The energy loss for a true free fall in a uniform gravitational field of a curved space-time is also investigated. The energy conservation law is satisfied only for the MTG.
