(d) We know that g’/g = R2/(R+h)2

? g/9/g = [R/R+h]2 ? h = 2R

By Newton’s law of gravitation, g is inversely proportional to r2,
So, g‘ / g = [R / R+h ] 2
Put g’ = g/9;  h= 2R

Dear student,
Please find the solution to your problem.
 
We have the relation, gh = g/(1 + h/R)2
Hence, (1 + h/R)2 = g/(g/9) = 9
hence, 1 + h/R = 3
or, h = 2R
 
Thanks and regards,
Kushagra
