Calculate metric tensor in terms of Mass

  • #1

Homework Statement


Suppose everything is moving slowly, How can we find the metric tensor in GR in terms of the mass contained.

Homework Equations


I understand in case of everything moving slowly only below equation is relevant -

R00 - ½g00R = 8πGT00 = 8πGmc2

The Attempt at a Solution


None.

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

If you still have not solved this...

Look in your text for the slow-motion weak-field limit of GR. Alternatively, look for the Schwarzschild solution and how the mass of the central object is related through this solution to the Schwarzschild radius.
