What is the definition of angular momentum that is to be conserved in the Schwarzschild solution of general relativity, expressed in coordinate time?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to put together an expression for gravitational acceleration that is to emulate the Schwarzschild solution. I need to test whether the angular momentum is conserved in the same manner that the Schwarzschild solution predicts.

After some googling I see that the quantity [tex]r^2d{\varphi}/d{τ}[/tex]

is supposed to be conserved according to the Schwarzschild solution, correct?

What is the correct expression for angular momentum that is to be conserved for a test-body in the Schwarzschild solution, expressed in coordinate time and not proper time?
