Since the metric is a solution to the EFEs does it intrinsically have the curvature of the gravitational field embedded in the metric? If so is it represented by the time and spatial components of the metric? If not could you please explain what those two components describe. Also, if the curvature isn't directly shown in the metric how exactly would one go about finding it?
