A particle of mass M is at a distance a from surface of a thin spherical shell of equal mass and having radius a.
                                            

  • (A):Gravitational field and potential both are zero at centre of the shell.
  • (B):Gravitational field is zero not only inside the shell but at a point outside the shell also.
  • (C):Inside the shell, gravitational field alone is zero.
  • (D):Neither gravitational field nor gravitational potential is zero inside the shell.

Best Answer

Correct Answer:

(D): Neither gravitational field nor gravitational potential is zero inside the shell.
