my name is Stefy.It is nice to finally meet you!

]]>Suppose he/she weighs at latitude N or S. Then his/her weight at latitude N or S is given by the following formula, which I calculated today:

[align=center]

is the ratio of the Equatorial radius of the Earth to the Polar radius of the Earth.Notes:

(1)

.(2)

and are weights, not masses. The persons mass does not vary with location on Earth.(3) Because the left-hand side is a ratio, it does not matter which unit you use to measure weight. You can use newtons, pounds, stones, or even the unscientific kilos. The utility of the formula is that if you know your weight at a particular latitude on Earth, you can calculate your weight at any other latitude on Earth.
