1.Does Newton's gravity explain Einstein's warped space, or does Einstein's warped space explain Newton's gravity?
2. If space is really warped - and there is really no Newtonian gravity - why DOES space curve around objects with mass?
1) The latter
2) We don't know if the question has any meaning. Why do electrons and protons have opposite charge?
It could be that this is simply the inevitable result of the BB, or there could be some deeper theory that explains the fundamental constants...we don't know.
In science we do not Assume that nature works in the way we model it. We just keep searching for the next best most accurate model of nature. In one time, Newton explained everything necessary, then Einstein explained even more ... Now, there are some things which even he didn't explain.
The curving of space is a very accurate model in that it explains the phenomenon of gravitation much better (for it involves geodesics, a straight line on a higher dimensional surface becomes curved). We assume that space-time is warped by mass in order to understand the workings of nature better.
Great explanation! Makes perfect sense to me.
both theories hold good ground. If we think abt which explains which than i would say nothing explains. What i mean is when newton discovered gravity einstiens theory did nt even exist, and einstien tried to find out abt space wrapping because he was unhappy abt gravity. Also curving of space is controversial.
What was first - chicken or egg?
Ofcourse the later one is true and Newtonians law is right for some cases only
it couldn't explain the orbit of mercury
1. Einsteins errorly warped space explains the Newton...
2. because of resonance I suppose.
For the first question, I think the latter is the correct option. I don't know for sure about the second one.
