Variation of acceleration due to gravity with depth. A doubt.

Rajkumar asks: “accelaration due to gravity decrease on depth of earth with the relation of g’=g(1-2h/R). but with relation of g=GM/(R*R)  g increase. Answer: When the object is on the surface or above it, the entire mass of the earth attracts it. But when it is inside, the net attraction towards CENTRE is provided only by the mass of [...]

Coulombian force and conductor

what’s effect of  coulombic forces on conductor medium ? amk niazi Ans: In a conductor, the coulombian  repulsive forces  pushes the valence electrons and the electrons move away from the center to the surface ie from the region of stronger force to the region of lesser force, creating a Faraday cage   Incoming search terms:what’s effect of coulombic forces on conductor [...]
