The problem concerns with the work done by the Gravitational Feild force exerted on a mass 'm' kept on the center of the base of a hemisphere of mass "M" radius "R". The way I did it was, first I found the Center of Mass of the hemisphere which is 3R/8. Next I used the concept => Work done= -Potential Energy. PE=-8GMm/3R So Work done would be= 8GMm/3R Work done by Gravitational Feild force is -8GMm/3R But the book says the answer is -3GMm/2R Where am I wrong . Please Help!
