Is this the Universal time equation; T=E / B x ! / g?

    No, it is not. Universal time is not really universal since it is based on Earth's rotation fate, which is slowing down but which can speed up. That is why leap seconds are added or taken away at the end of of June or December to keep atomic clocks synced withe the changes in Earth's rotation rate. The March 11, 2011 earthquake in Japan redistributed enough of Earth's mass that the rotation rate sped up. 

    The equation of time looks nothing like that and is not dependent on Earth's acceleration of gravity.

    UTC time has been in use since 2001, replacing GMT. There are aso 37 time zones on Earth some time zones are offset BT half an hour, like India's and Pakistan's. Others are offset by 45 or 15 minutes. Australia tralia has 2 time zones next to each other that can be 2 hours and 15 minutes apart in time. And you think DST in the United States is strange?

    ! has no meaning in Physics.  E and B are not related to g. This is a meaningless question. 

  • I have never seen that equation in my life, but for time, I think we base it off the latitude/longitude (can't remember whicH) we're in; hence the time zones
