As part of a greater problem, i wonder if anyone could help me with this one. If i had a 100 meter length of pipe laid on the ground that wieghed say 100kg. if i stood the pipe up would the pipe wiegh less, allowing that the force of gravity decreases with the square of the distance from the earth if so how would i calculate the new wieght. I hope someone can help thx.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
