In this interactive quiz and worksheet combo your understanding of the definition of the General Theory of Relativity and its consequences will be tested, including the effect of gravity on time and light. You should be familiar with the formulas explained in the accompanying lesson, and be prepared to solve practice problems that will test your knowledge of these formulas.

In this assessment you'll be tested on:

- The definition of the General Theory of Relativity
- The relationship between inertial and gravitational mass
- What is not a consequence of the theory
- How mass is defined in a related formula
- Using a formula explained in the lesson to solve a practice problem

**Making connections**- use your understanding of the concept of mass as it is defined in the General Theory of Relativity.**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve practice problems about mass and time.**Defining key concepts**- ensure that you can accurately define main phrases, such as inertial and gravitational mass.**Distinguishing differences**- compare and contrast inertial and gravitational mass as it relates to the behavior of light photons and the measurement of time.

To learn more about Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, review the accompanying lesson titled 'General Theory of Relativity: Analysis & Practice Problems.' This lesson covers the following:

- A brief definition and explanation of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity
- The definitions and relationship of inertial and gravitational mass.
- The implications of gravitational fields and their effect on time and light.
- How to solve problems related to the General Theory of Relativity using established formulas.
