Continuing on the theme of central forces. This is an initial image of the next guy I’m looking at.
This one is pretty similar to the others I’ve done except for that empty circle in the center.
I’ve had this sitting on my computer for a while and thought I’d publish it rather then just leave it sitting there. This simulates a pulse of light expanding out like my compression wave examples. This time however, we are looking at a pulse of light expanding in the vicinity of a black hole. Rather than expanding out in a circular wave pulse, it wraps around the hole and circles back to the original location traveling around the hole forever.
