Unformatted text preview: the code to calculate the Christoel symbols for the Schwarzchild geometry. (You need to specify the metric for the Schwarzchild geometry in In[4]. You need to print out and hand in the entire notebook including output Out[10] which will display the Christoel symbols. ) (We will be using the code when discussing Einstein equation (you will then need those lines after In[10]) so it would be a good idea to keep a copy of the le even after you have turned in the homework.)
