Utilizing the principle of equivalence and the radiation continuum model of EM radiation, it is demonstrated that Newton's gravitational potential applies only for static or slowly moving objects. The addition of velocity dependent terms, derivable from the principle of equivalence and the equivalence of matter and energy, produces the full dynamic gravitational potential. This dynamic potential is applied to the problem of Mercury's orbit and photon deflection, fully accounting both, and providing a result identical in form and value to that obtained utilizing the curved space-time of GRT.
