If I am asked to show that the tt-component of the Einstein equation for the static metric(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

##ds^2 = (1-2\phi(r)) dt^2 - (1+2\phi(r)) dr^2 - r^2(d\theta^2 + sin^2(\theta) d\phi^2)##, where ##|\phi(r)| \ll1## reduces to the Newton's equation, what exactly am I supposed to prove?
