Question

What is the weight of a block of mass 5 kg at the centre of the Earth? ( Take g = 10 msec2 )


  1. 50N

  2. 100N

  3. Zero

  4. Can't be determined


Solution

The correct option is C

Zero


Since weight is the force due to the gravity of Earth, since "g” is zero at the centre of the Earth. Therefore, the weight of the block would be zero.
