Why is the circumference of the Earth greater at the Equator than from pole to pole?

The reason is because Earth has a slightly oblate shape.

Why is gravity more at the poles than at the equator?

1. Earth isn't an exact sphere and it's slightly oblate, so there is less distance to the center of gravity at the poles than at the equator. 2. Earth rotates, so you have t

Why is the gravity stronger at the poles than the equator?

Simple, although the mass is less at the poles, because the earth is spinning and therefore the earth's circumference swells at the equator, creating more mass underneath your

Why is gravity stronger at the poles than the equator?

At the poles: (1) You are closer to the center of the Earth. (2) There is not the centrifugal force (or centripetal acceleration, if you prefer) which acts at the equator.

Is Gravity greater at the equator?

  Actually it is slightly weaker due to Earth's rotation

Why is gravity stronger at the poles than at the equator?

The planet Earth is not a perfect sphere. Instead, it is slightly flatter than an average sphere at the North and South poles. Gravity is stronger when you are closer to the c

Why is the strength of gravity different at the poles and the equator?

The strength of gravity is different at the poles and the equator because the earth is not actually spherical.

Does gravity have a stronger pull at the eatrh poles then it does on the equator?

no, but the electromagnetic field of the earth does.

Is the altitude of the tropopause greater at the equator than at the poles or at the poles than at the equator?

It is greater at the Equator. The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere varying in altitude from approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) at the poles to approx

Is the gravity more in the pole or in the equator?

gravity is more in the poles because poles are the extremes and equator is in middle which divides the earth into two

Is value of g is greater at the poles or at equator?

Values of g at equator is lesss as compared to that of poles

What has more gravity the equator or north pole?

The North pole due to centrifugal force and its effects at the equator
In Physics

What is the measure of gravity at poles?

At poles, gravity is maximum as distance from center is largest.

5300Gal

Is the gravity stronger at the poles or at the equator?

THEORETICALLY the answer to your question is yes. Locations at the poles are both closer to the center of the earth and are not accelerated tangentially by the rotation of the

Is the diameter of the earth greater at the equator or from pole to pole?

The diameter is greater at the Equator, because the Earth is not a perfect sphere but is flatter toward the Poles.
