Q1 Single Correct Medium
The dependence of $$g$$ on geographical latitude at sea level is given by $$g = g_0(1 + \beta\sin^2\phi)$$ where $$\phi$$ is the latitude angle and $$\beta$$ is a dimensionless constant. It $$\Delta g$$ is the error in the measurement of $$g$$ then the error in measurement of latitude angle is
  • A. $$\Delta_{2\phi}=\cfrac{3\Delta g}{g_0\beta\sin(2\phi)}$$
  • B. $$\Delta_{\phi}=\cfrac{\Delta g}{g_0\beta\cos(2\phi)}$$
  • C. $$\Delta_{\phi}=\cfrac{\Delta g}{g_0}$$
  • D. Zero
