Consider the following statements:
- The Earth’s gravity is stronger at the poles than at the equator
- The centrifugal force cancels out the gravity negligibly more at the equator than at the poles
- The poles are closer to the center due to the equatorial bulge and thus have a stronger gravitational field
Which of the above statements is/are correct?
All the three statements are correct. The first statement is a fact and second and third statements are its reasons.
