Expert Answer:

Hi sonali.19cool@gmail.com, the answer to the query that you have posted can be found in the NCERT text book Part I.

Kindly refer to page number 190-191 for your answer.

Only the terminology used is different.

The expression for the acceleration due to gravity above the surface of the Earth is the same as for the variation of gravity with altitude. And the expression for the acceleration due to gravity below the surface of the Earth is the same as for the variation of gravity with depth.

It explains all the details needed for your query.
