Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im getting confused in solving this problem. I just cant pick out the correct formulae to solve it.

"At 45 degree latitude, the gravitational acceleration as a function of elevation "z" above sea level is given by

g=a-bz

where a=9.807 meter per second square and b=3.32x10^-6 s^-2.

Determine the height above the sea level where the weight of an object will decrease by 1 percent."

Thanks in advance
