Dear Student

Please elaborate your question more. Gravitation is less when distance from centre of earth is large. at earth or near to earth we take g=10m/s2.

g=GM/R2.  where R is distance from center of earth as radius of earth is very large 6400 km so  we use R=Re for distance very less comparable to Re. but if we move distance comparable to Re then g will decrease and will not be 10m/s2


All the best.
