Q. 25.0( 2 Votes )

At maximum of the locations the value of ‘g’ is a maximum:
A. On the top of Mount Everest

B. On the top of Qutab Minar

C. At any place on the equator

D. A camp site in Antarctica

Answer :

We know that the value of g is inversely proportional to the square of radius or g .


Radius of earth is minimum at poles, so acceleration due to gravity is maximum at poles. Similarly, radius of earth is maximum at equator, so acceleration due to gravity is minimum at equator. Also acceleration due to gravity decreases as we go higher from the earth surface.


Hence, option D is correct.
