I was wonder if some can explain to me what exactly are the 10 parameters for the metric tensors. I know the reason for getting 10 parameters, 3^2=9 + 1, you get three for every spatial dimensions plus one for time. But why exactly three parameters for each spatial dimension? And what exactly are these three parameters for a spatial dimension? Can someone fill me in, I really what to know!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
