Question:

The value of the gravitational acceleration g decreases with elevation from 9.807 m/s² at the sea level to 9.767 m/s² at an altitude of 13000 m, where large passenger planes cruise. Determine the perc

The value of the gravitational acceleration g decreases with elevation from 9.807 m/s² at the sea level to 9.767 m/s² at an altitude of 13000 m, where large passenger planes cruise. Determine the percentage reduction in the weight of an airplane cruising at 13000 m relative to its weight at sea level.
