The radius and mass of earth are increased by 0.5%. Which of the following statements are true at the surface of the earth
g will increase
g will decrease
Escape velocity will remain unchanged
Potential energy will remain unchanged
g=GMR2,ve=2GMR and U=−GMmR
∴g∝MR2,ve∝MR and U∝MR
If both mass and radius are increased by 0.5% then ve and U remains unchanged where as g decrease by 0.5%.
