If the weight of man on earth surface is,80 , assuming g on surface to be 10 his mass would be 80/10=8kg
For his weight to become 60 we need a different value of g as mass is constant
New value of g should be 60/8=7.5
Now the gravity at a depth d can be found from this formula:
g’=g(1-d/R)
Putting in the known values
7.5=10(1-d/R)
(1-d/R)=0.75
d/R=0.25
d=0.25R= R/4=1600km
(where R is radius of earth and =6400km
