A mass of 100kg weighs 980.6N at sea level. Estimate the weight of this body at the top of a mountain 5km high. Assume that the mean diameter of the earth is 12742km.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:45 pm ad1c9bdddf
Because weight at the earth surface (Wo) = GMe*m/Re^2
where, G = universal gravitational constant,
Me = ...
The explanations and calculations prove the solution. The effects of gravity on a mass measured at sea level and stop a 5km mountain is determined.
