Variation of Time with altitude

Time shown by a clock at a height more than that of the mount everest will be ahead of the time shown by the clock at ground level? Or it will be same? Or there will be a difference but very small.? Answer: If it is a pendulum clock, the time period will vary with … Continue reading Variation of Time with altitude
