Hi I have been trying to teach my self the basics of Einsteins Field Equations, because I find them extremely interesting and there is a huge lack of EFE in the canadian high school curriculum. I have been trying to under stand the equation G=8pi*(G/c^2)T. I get what the equation is for ( the curvature of space) but I don't understand how to calculate the Momentum- Energy tensor (T). so that is my question, How do you calcuate for T? and also once you find the final value for "G" what unit is it in or is it a formula for a curve(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
