Explain why the value of 'g' differs while moving from poles to equator on the surface of the earth. State how would its value change on moving:

(a) towards the centre of the earth.

(b) away from the earth.

Earth is not perfectly spherical. Radius of earth increases from the poles to the equator.


g becomes greater at the poles than that at the equator.

In both the cases (a) and (b), the value of g decreases as the distance from the surface increases.
