Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Bob on Monday, April 22, 2013 at 3:55am.

Climbing to the top of Mount Everest is hard. But, it's slightly easier than you might think as people weigh less as they climb to the top. Let WE be a person's weight on top of Mount Everest and WS be their weight at sea level. What is the value of 1−WE/WS?

Details and assumptions:

+ Assume the earth (other than Everest) is a sphere of mass 61024 kg and radius 6,370 km.

+ The top of Mount Everest is 8,848 m above the surface of the earth.
