Question

# A plot of gravitational field v/s distance of a point from the center for a solid sphere of radius R revealed

A
the slope of the curve from r=0 to r=R is a straight line with slope being proportional to density of the object
B
the slope of the curve from r=0 to r=R is a straight line with slope = g
C
the slope of the curve from r=0 to r=R is a straight line with slope = 0
D
the slope of the curve from r=0 to r=R is a straight line with slope = GM
Solution
