Expert Answer:

acceleration due to gravity is expressed as :
g = (GM)/H2
where G is the universal gravitational constant
M is the mass of earth
and H is the distance between the point of observation and the center of earth.
thus if g = 0.2 m/ss
then H can be calculated and height above the earth's surface
h = H - aR
where R is the radius of Earth
