1. Hi. Microbiology student here.

In terms of time dilation in relation to a physical objects speed, is it safe to make this conclusion-

A human body that spent a portion of time sitting, not in motion, would have "aged" different from a human body that spent that same portion of time in motion?

Meaning, no matter the extreme miniscule difference in speed, is there always an equally miniscule change in "ageing" that is a constant under a formula?

Thanks!

3. The very short version of an answer, I believe, is yes. Given two bodies in relative motion, if one moves away from and back to the other object, it will have had "aged" less than the object that didn't move.

Nope

Body A has speed 0.99999999999999999999999 *speed of light
Body B has speed 0.01 m/s smaller than Body A

Difference in speed is small, difference in ageing is large.

thank you. that logic got the gears turning.

Trouble is, the whole planet Earth is in motion. So, if you get up and start walking, you could just as easily walk in a direction where your total speed is less as walk in a direction where your total speed is greater.

I thought ArcaneMathematician's answer was better

Quoting does not work if the second checkbox down there \/ is checked

Good point :-D
