MTW Excercise 7.1

    I have managed to get to the end of Chapter 6 and have done almost all of the exercises (I didn't get anywhere with exercise 5.6 (d) and have seen the Cesarth/TSny exchange and still don't feel I have a satisfactory solution...) but I have hit a bit of a wall with Exercise 7.1. I've attached my manuscript working which achieves a result of 0 = 0 (well at least it is consistent) but no differential equations. Can anyone give me a hint as to how I should be approaching this?

    Regards

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Thanks for the suggestion Greg. I'll try a different title to see if I can attract more interest. I suspect MTW has gone out of fashion over the years. I bought my copy in the early seventies but I quickly realised I couldn't really work on it at the same time as having a career (not physics related) and a family. I'm retired now so I'm fulfilling my ambition to study GR using this book. I've already done some work on the subject using D'Inverno, which I bought for my son's time at University but I prefer MTW - I reckon it's a physicist's book!

    Regards
