A plumb bob (a mass m hanging on a string) is deflected from the vertical by an angle θ due to a massive mountain.

A) Make an estimate of the mass of Mt. Everest, assuming it has the shape of a cone 3910 m high and base of diameter 3910 m. Assume its mass per unit volume is 3000 kg per m^3.

B)Estimate the angle of the plumb bob if it is 5.20 km from the center of Mt. Everest.
