Can someone help me to calculate the difference between accelerations due to Newton’s law of gravitation and Einstein’s general relativity?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let’s assume the gravitating mass M equals to 1kg and the distance r equals to 1m than the acceleration due to Newton is:

a = G * M / r^2 = 6,6742 m/s^2

What is the acceleration, in such a case, calculated using math of GR?
