Given below are two statements : One is labelled as Assertion A and the other is labelled as Reason R.
Assertion A : If we move from poles to equator, the direction of acceleration due to gravity of earth always points towards the center of earth without any variation in its magnitude.
Reason R : At equator, the direction of acceleration due to the gravity is towards the center of earth.
In the light of above statements, choose the correct answer from the options given below:
The variation of acceleration due to gravity (g) with distance (r) from the center of the earth is correctly represented by :
(Given R = radius of earth)
The height of any point P above the surface of earth is equal to diameter of earth. The value of acceleration due to gravity at point P will be : (Given g = acceleration due to gravity at the surface of earth).
The distance between Sun and Earth is R. The duration of year if the distance between Sun and Earth becomes 3R will be :
