Question

1-22 The weight of bodies may change somewhat from one location to another as a result of the variation of the gravitational acceleration g with elevation. Accounting for this variation using the relation in Prob. 1-12, determine the weight of an 80-kg person at sea level (z = 0), in Denver (z 1610 m),and on the top of Mount Everest (z = 8848 m).!!
