359(1): The Spacetime Velocity Field of Newtonian Gravitation

This is given by Eq. (14) or (15) in Cartesian coordinates, and it can be translated into plane polar coordinates. It swirls around the Newtonian acceleration due to gravity when the latter is directed in the Z axis. The same result is true for the Coulomb potential of a static electric field. The velocity field for the whirlpool galaxy is given in Eq. (16) fro comparison.
