Textbook Problem

Another known cause of red shift in light is the source being in a high gravitational field. Discuss how this can be eliminated as the source of galactic red shifts, given that the shifts are proportional to distance and not to the size of the galaxy.

To determine

The elimination of high gravitational field as the source of galactic red shifts when the shifts are proportional to the distance not the size of the galaxy.

Explanation

Introduction:

Red shift in light is defined as the phenomenon due to the Doppler Effect when the motion of source is relative to observer.

Since, the gravitation field is different on the source and the observer. So, the red shift occurs due to the difference in gravitational field when the source is in high gravitational field in comparison to the observer...
