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 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

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
