###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Volume, Weight and Mass

### Is there a relationship between height and mass?

Indeed there is a relationship. Density is equal to the mass
divided by the volume (height times width times length). So, height
is equal to mass divided by (height times length times width) or H=
M/(HLW)

### How does weight change as you move away from or towards the center of gravity?

Weight is technically the force that gravity exerts on you. Mass
is how much matter you "are". Mass times the acceleration of
gravity will equal your weight. Newton discovered that the force of
gravity [your weight] is equal to a constant times the mass of the
planet times the mass of you all divided by the radius to the
center squared. This equation shows that the weight is inversely
proportional to the radius to the center squared. Thus, as the
radius to...
