Hello so if we have geodesic equation lagrange(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

approximation solution:

d/ds(mg_{μν}dx^{ν}/ds)=m∂g_{μν}∂x^{λ}dx^{μ}/ds dx^{ν}/ds. So if we have schwarzschild metric (wich could be used to describe example sun) wich is:ds^{2}=(1-r_{s}/r)dt^{2}-(1-r_{s}/r)^{-1}dr^{2}-r^{2}[/SUP]-sin^{2}2. But that means that ∂g_{μν}/∂x^{λ}=0. So that means that first equation will equal to zero so that means that sun has no gravity effect to test particle. But according to my knowledge sun does pull things towards itself.
