# A plot of gravitational field v/s distance for a solid sphere of radius R, follows a straight line graph for certain range of distance. The field was determined for at the centre of the spherer = 0 to r = Rr = R to r = Infinitya point on the surface

A
at the centre of the sphere
B
r = 0 to r = R
C
r = R to r = Infinity
D
a point on the surface
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### The field is found to increase from r =0 to r = R and at r =R, the field is maximum. The field starts reducing from r = R to infinity and becomes zero at r = infinity
