At what height from the ground will the value of 'g' be the same as that in 10 km deep mine below the surface of earth

\[(a)\;20\;km \quad (b)\;10\;km \quad (c)\;15\;km \quad (d)\;5\;km \]

1 Answer

Same changes in value of $'g'$ can be observed at a depth $'x'$ and height $'2x'$
given that the depth $'d'=x=10 km$
$\therefore $ The same change can be observed at a height $2x=20 \;km$
Hence a is the correct answer
