Acceleration due to Gravity and Variation in g:

Acceleration due to Gravity

F = GMmR2

g = GM/R2

g = 4/3 πpGR

g = GM/R2 = 4/3 πpGR

(iv) Dimension [g] = [LT-2].

(v) 9.8 m/s2 or 981 cm/sec2 or 32 feet/s2,

ge = GM/Rp2 

From (i) and (ii) ge/gp = R2pR2e

Since Requator > Rpole

gp = ge + 0.018 ms-2
