## Geometry and Gen. Gauss' Law

Address a critique by Prof. John Baez:

"Instead what really matters is that Sweetser's model is a field theory on

Minkowski spacetime, not a background-free theory like general relativity."

Torsion-free, metric compatible connection means there is a unique metric for the connection (Christoffel symbol).

Focus on static point sources, the simplest, non-trivial case.

Disprove the critique with four calculations of charge densities:
- Neutron in flat Euclidean spacetime.
- Proton in flat Euclidean spacetime.
- Neutron in curved spacetime.
- Proton in curved spacetime.
