What is the decrease in weight of a body of mass 600kg when it is taken in a mine of depth 5000m?
[ Radius of earth = 6400km, g = 9.8 m/s2 ]
Prove that `g_h=g(1-"2h"/R)` where gh is the acceleration due to gravity at altitude h and h << R (R is the radius of the earth).
A hole is drilled half way to the centre of the Earth. A body is dropped into the hole. How much will it weigh at the bottom of the hole if the weight of the body on the Earth’s surface is 350 N?
A sonometer wire vibrates with frequency n1 in air under suitable load of specific gravity of . When the load is immersed in water, the frequency of vibration of wire n2 will be .........
‘g’ is the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the Earth and ‘R’ is the radius of the
Show that acceleration due to gravity at height ‘h’ above the surface of the Earth is
`gh = g (R/(R+H))^2`
