A
12mgR
B
zero
C
mgR
D
mgR
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### Given,The mass of the particle be m,Initilly it is on the centre of the earth, soThe work done in moving a particle from center of earth to its surface W=∫R0Fdr=∫R0(−G(ρ43πr3)mr2)dr=∫R0(−4Gρπmr3)dr=GMm2R,we know that F=GMmR2=mg=12mgR(Since g=GMR2)So, The work done in shifting a particle of mass from the centre of the earth to the surface of the earth is =mgR2.
