I understand that higher the gravitational potential, "slower" time runs. So a clock on international space station will run "faster" than a clock at sea level.
However does it matter where the gravity is coming from? (i know it shouldnt since the gravitation force formula has no direction, just mass and distance)
Here is the part that i want to understand:
say you have an object of mass $M$ at a distance of $r$ from the observer $O_1$
and you have $4$ smaller objects of mass $M/4$ each placed at the point of a compass with the observer $O_2$ at the center at a distance $r/4$
Will the two observers experience the same time dilation?
