Week 9    26-30 October

This week's video is a short lecture that's just a brief overview of General Relativity. You're going to have to spend some serious time in the text to get to the nitty-gritties. 

Remember, the purpose of these topics on Relativity (both Special and General) is get you up to speed on the nature of space and spacetime. 

The Launchpad homework assignment that goes with this lecture is based on chapter 12, section 11.

Take your time and READ!
