Question

If we carry a box of jewellery to the top of a mountain, the weight of jewellery box will
  1. will first decrease and then increase
  2. increase
  3. remain constant
  4. decrease


Solution

The correct option is D decrease
The magnitude of acceleration due to gravity decreases as we move away from the surface of the earth i.e., either towards the centre of the earth or above the surface of the earth.
And we also know, weight of an object, W=mg.
where, m is the mass and g is the acceleration due to gravity.
Since the value of acceleration due to gravity reduces with height, so does the weight of an object.
