: : Can someone tell me how time relates to acceleration?

: Space-time curves when acted upon by gravity, but why does : time slow down if acceleration increases?

I believe it is because, relative to rest energy, an object in motion has kinetic energy and thus as the kinetic energy (gamma) approaches that of mc^2 it curves S/T.

Please click on following link. I have a feeling it will clarify for you... : ) or i'm sure someone here can as well.
