Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, but a lot of height, enough to drastically change the Earth's gravitational influence over the object.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\LARGE g=\frac{GM}{(1+\frac{H}{R})^2}\approx GM(1\frac{2H}{R})\] This is the variation with height,which is approximately to the other one if h<<R

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you take it to a height comparable to radius of earth..more than 5% more than radius of earth or so.
