# Choose the Correct Alternative Acceleration Due to Gravity Increases/Decreases with Increasing Depth. (Assume the Earth to Be a Sphere of Uniform Density). - Physics

Choose the correct alternative:

Acceleration due to gravity increases/decreases with increasing depth. (assume the earth to be a sphere of uniform density).

#### Solution

Decreases

Acceleration due to gravity at depth d is given by the relation:

g_d = (1-d/R_e)g

It is clear from the given relation that acceleration due to gravity decreases with an increase in depth.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
