## Main Question or Discussion Point

I tried to search everywhere but couldn't find an answer, so here it goes.

In Newtonian mechanics, the gravitational acceleration g at a distance r from the gravitating object is given by

Does this equation apply in general relativity aswel? If not, what is the equivalent in GR, ie. how do you calculate the acceleration due to gravity in GR?
