# The values of g at six distances A, B, C, D, E and F from the surface of the earth are found to be 3.08 m/s^{2}, 9.23 m/s^{2}, 0.57 m/s^{2}, 7.34 m/s^{2}, 0.30 m/s^{2} and 1.49 m/s^{2}, respectively.

(a) Arrange these values of g according to the increasing distances from the surface of the earth (keeping the value of g nearest to the surface of the earth first)

(b) If the value of distance F be 10000 km from the surface of the earth, state whether this distance is deep inside the earth or high up in the sky. Give reason for your answer.

Answer :

(a) 9.23 m/s^{2} , 7.34 m/s^{2} , 3.08 m/s^{2} , 1.49 m/s^{2} , 0.57 m/s^{2} , 0.30 m/s^{2}

(b) This distance F of 10000 km is high up in the sky. The distance of 10000 km cannot be deep inside the earth because the radius of earth is only about 6400km and the value of g at the centre of earth becomes zero.

Universal law of gravitation states that every object exerts a gravitational force of attraction on every other object. If this is true, why don’t we notice such forces? Why don’t the two objects in a room move towards each other due to this force? (Picture)
