    So it should defo be a decrease - because you're moving away from the centre, so it's either A or B; how can you rule out A or ascertain B?

    call the field strength at the base of the mountain 1.000gm (i.e. one martian g)

    then field strength at the peak in gm is

    1/(1.006)2
    =0.9881

    0.9881-1.000 = -0.1189

    ---
    note gravitational field strength is +ve... A level formulae sheets give earths g=+9.81 iirc... so more distance from CoM means a -ve change in field strength.

    Thanks, I get it now. Its definitely the most trickiest multiple choice question I've seen. :lol:
