Gravity is Geometry.
MacKeown, P. K.
Physics Teacher, v22 n9 p557-64 Dec 1984
Clarifies two concepts of gravity--those of a fictitious force and those of how space and time may have geometry. Reviews the position of Newton's theory of gravity in the context of special relativity and considers why gravity (as distinct from electromagnetics) lends itself to Einstein's revolutionary interpretation.
