I've never taken a class on GR, but I've been looking at books on the subject.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Clearly, Einstein's equations for GR must reduce to Newton's law of gravity, but how? I haven't seen it worked out anywhere. Can someone send me a link, or show a proof or derivation?

Like I said, it's not homework or anything; I'm just interested in seeing how it's done.

Thanks,

Geez
