Asked by suvdol | 24th Aug, 2008, 07:38: PM

Expert Answer:

use the formula g' =g (1-2h / R)

where g' is the gravity above height h,

g,is the  acceleration due to gravity on surface of earth,R is the radius of the earth,

h,is height above the earth surface.

put the value g' in terms of g and find the answer.
