If you simply interpret the RHS of the geodesic equation as a four-acceleration, can't we just treat gravity as a force?
Murphrid is correct. You can certainly move the term involving Christoffel symbols to the other side from the term involving the coordinate acceleration, but the resulting equation is no longer a tensor equation and does not transform as a tensor does.If you simply interpret the RHS of the geodesic equation as a four-acceleration, can't we just treat gravity as a force?
