Just for clarity, the geometry of the universe is completly determined by the stuff that the universe contains. The parameter k in the R-W metric and in the Friedmann equation *is determined* by the density.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The curvature/ geometry of the universe is not independent of the density.

Correct or not?

Thank you!
