Question: mountain pull a large mountain can slightly affect the direction...

Question details

Mountain pull. A large mountain can slightly affect the direction of “down” as determined by a plumb line. Assume that we can model a mountain as a sphere of radius R = 2.00 km and density (mass per unit volume) 2.6 × 103 kg/m3. Assume also that we hang a 0.500m plumb line at a distance of 3R from the sphere's center and such that the sphere pulls horizontally on the lower end. How far would the lower end move toward the sphere?
