hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please see attached snapshot. My question is regarding the way MTW found the term h_{00}or just for the hbar from equation 7.

Now since we are in the static case, Equation 7 becomes a Laplacian. But I could not figure out how the 1/r term came to be and where did the 16Pi go ?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
