Dear Student


Weight of the body is given by the formula
W = mg
It depends ors the value of ‘g’ i.e., acceleration due to gravity.
The weight of gold at poles = Wp= m × g (poles)
Value of g at poles is more than the value of g at equator.
The weight of gold at equator = We= m × g (equator)
∴ Wp> We.
The weight at pole of the same gold is found to be more as compared to the weight at the equator.


Thanks
