Compared to that of a plane on the ground, earth’s gravitational pull on a plane 7 miles above earth is approximately a) zero b) the same c) half as much d) twice as much

I am proply right that it is B

Your answer is c. hope i ! ~shantiicakes

The answer is b (the same)

The correct answer is

B) the same

As you travel away from the Earth's surface, your mass stays the same but your weight reduces as gravitational pull decreases. Keeping this in mind, the answer is most likely B or C.

B) the same

Explanation:

The altitude of the atmosphere is about 1,000 km (622 miles), yet 80% of the fluid mass is 5 km (3.5 miles) above the earth's surface.

The gravity on the surface is influenced by the pressure that the air exerts due to its weight, this can happen in different ways depending on the point and time and many other circumstances.
