Complete Solution for Particles of Nonzero Rest Mass in Gravitational Fields

M. M. Izam, D. I Jwanbot, G.G. Nyam


In a paper "The Golden Dynamical Equation of Motion for Particles of Nonzero Rest in Gravitational Fields" (Howusu 2004, Physics Essays 17(3)), the planetary orbital equation of motion for particles of nonzero rest mass in gravitational fields was derived. In this paper we used the series method to calculate the angle of deflection for a photon that grazes the edge of the sun in the sun's Gravitational field. Our results were found to fall within experimental, measurements.

Keywords: Passive mass, Inertial mass, Gravitational field, Gravitational Potential, Deflection angle.
