Exact Differentials in General Rrelativity

Authors: Anamitra Palit

The article seeks to define and analyze work in the context of General Relativity. The definition of work in General Relativity as considered with this article is an extrapolation of what we have in Special Relativity.This definition as brought out in this paper takes into account the involvement of the curvature effects into the definition of work. The paper also considers the weak field limit of work in relation to Schwarzschild’s Geometry. In the classical limit of weak space time curvature our definition produces the classical energy conservation formula: the sum of potential and kinetic energy as defined classically is conserved when Schwarzschild geometry is treated in the weak field limit with our definition of work.
