- How can time dilation be symmetric? 8 answers
This is the question that has been on my mind lately: If an object A is moving away from an object B which is presumed stationary by A, then the time observed from the perspective of object B will flow (if you will) faster than the time on the object A, correct?
However in the same way according to my understanding, if the view points are reversed, then the same effect is to take place from the perspective of the observer in the Object A towards object B. From perspective of observer A (granted there is no point of any observable reference besides object B, object B is moving away and object A is stationary. In which case the time dialation applicable to A and the same effect applicable to B effectively cancel each other out.
Would this be an accurate assumption?
And if later A or B or both A and B reversed their direction and met, would the time lapsed in each of their measurement be equal to the time either of them have spent in apart and therefore be of equal duration relative to both A and B?
