1. Many people know that the weight of an object varies on different planets, but did you know that the weight of an object on Earth also varies according to the elevation of the object? In particular, the weight of an object follows this equation: , where C is a constant, and r is the distance that the object is from the center of Earth.
c. Use the value of C you found in the previous question to determine how much the object would weigh in
i. If it is 482 feet below sea level
ii. If it is 30,320 feet above sea level.
