At 45deg Latitude The Gravitational

At 45° latitude, the gravitational acceleration as a function of elevation z above sea level is given by g = a – bz, where a = 9.807 m/s2 and b = 3.32 x 10-6 s-2. Determine the height above sea level where the weight of an object will decrease by 1 percent. Answer: 29,539 m
