1 If the Sun passes between the Earth and a pair of stars as shown, and the Moon passes in front of the Sun and totally eclipses it so the stars are visible, then according to general relativity, the stars will appear to be slightly 1. closer together. 2. farther apart. 3. distorted, but not closer or farther apart.

2 If the Sun passes between the Earth and a pair of stars as shown, and the Moon passes in front of the Sun and totally eclipses it so the stars are visible, then according to general relativity, the stars will appear to be slightly

3 If a ball is horizontally projected between a vertical pair of parallel walls, it will bounce back and forth and fall a vertical distance of 4.9 m in 1 s in a uniform gravitational field. If the walls were ideal mirrors and a horizontal beam of light were directed between them, light would reflect back and forth and in one second fall a vertical distance of 1. zero m. 2. between zero and 4.9 m m. 4. more than 4.9 m.
