Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yep u must have right to ask that\[\LARGE{\color{red}{F=\frac{Gm1m2}{R^2}}}\] If u increase the distance{R}, force will definitely decrease & so the gravity would also decrease.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3m1 & m2 are mass of any 2 bodies. r is distance between them. G is gravitational constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3& good one according to @AravindG . \[\huge{\color{Purple}{g_h=g_0\left(\frac{r_e}{r_e+h}\right)^2.}}\]Where; 1.) "gh" is the gravitational acceleration at height "h", above sea level. 2.) "re" is the Earth's mean radius. 3.) "g0" is the standard gravitational acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3This one is also used for proving ur question:)\[\LARGE{\color{red}{F=\frac{GM_1M_2}{R^2}.}}\]Where; 1.) M1 & M2 are masses of 2 bodies. 2.) G is Gravitational constant. 3.) R is distance between those two bodies. 4.) & F is the force felt by them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would not say that gravity decreases with more altitude but yes it would decrease with distance from the mass.
