Homework Statement


how can i show the universe is static and not expanding, how it really is.


Homework Equations


[tex]\Omega[/tex]M=...
[tex]\Omega[/tex][tex]\Lambda[/tex]=...



The Attempt at a Solution



"The expansion history of the universe depends on the amount of matter (gravity), quantified
by [tex]\Omega[/tex]M
M, and dark energy (anti-gravity), given by" [tex]\Omega[/tex][tex]\Lambda[/tex]
So would setting these two formulas = to each other and solving for the cosmological constant, that would give me a static universe right? I am like 90% sure its right but want some conformation.
thanks

It's not static, it's expanding.

i know its expanding lol just think of this as different universe thats static. We have a project and one part of it is to create like a homework problem. it has to be on dark energy, so i figured my problem would be using that formula and showing the universe is static, like what Einstein thought
