Abstract

In this paper, we derive the equation of motion for test particles of non-zero rest masses based on the generalized exterior gravitational scalar potential. The time, radial, polar and azimuthal equations of motion for particles of non-zero rest masses moving in this gravitational field has been derived. The motion of the planets was confined to the equatorial plane of the Sun and the resulting radial equations of motion were solved to obtain a complete generalized radial equation of motion. The results is that the complete generalized radial equation of motion for particles of non - zero rest masses is augmented with correction terms of all order of c^(-2)which are for theoretical development and application.
