Abstract : Einstein's conclusion that the rotating object would fall more slowly as it applies to the Nordstrom theory of gravity is demonstrated. Additionally, these phenomena are investigated within the compass of a simple special-relativistic generalization of Newtonian theory and the general theory of Einstein. The former fails the test; the latter does not. (Author)
