Hi guys, I got a question that has been in my head for a while.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is the newtonian gravitional force equivalent to the "tension" in the space time fabric caused by the depression of 2 masses? If it is equivalent, does it means that gravitional force does not act in a straight line but it spread across the curvature in the space time fabric? If it is not, then what is the newtonian gravitional force representation in general relativity?

Thanks
