For example at very low speed (v<<c), in Special Relativity, we can approximate relativistic motion to Classical Newtonian motion.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But in General Relativity, what situation can make there an approximation to Newtonian Gravity

( just like v<<c ) ?

Thanks.
