The weight of an object will be minimum at high point like mountain. This is because weight depends on acceleration due to gravity and acceleration due to gravity is inversely proportional to the square of distance from center of earth to the object. As high places like mountain is far from earth center, there is minimun weight. But at the center of earth the weight becomes null as gravity pull takes place in all direction from the center.

### Weight of an object will be minimum when it is placed at?

weight of an object is minimum when it is placed at the center of the earth because when an object is in the center ,it experiences gravitational pull from all the sides.thus the net weight of an object remains to be zero. +++ Possibly, but given that the centre of the Earth is unreachable and a ball of metal anyway, a more useful and achievable location for weightlessness is in Space!

### what is relationship between weight and mass?

Mass is the amount of matter in an object, while weight is the gravitational force applied to an object. Mass is a function of weight since weight it determined by the amount of force placed on an object of a certain mass.

### What will happen if the buoyant force of a liquid is less than the weight of an object placed in that fluid?

The object will sink in the fluid.

### When an object is placed in a fluid the object weighs less by an amount equal to the weight of displaced fluid is?

this is Archimedes' Principle

### What happen if the buoyant force of a fluid is less than the weight of an object placed in the fluid?

The object will sink in the fluid.

### What will happen if the buoyant force of a fluid is less than the weight of an object placed in the fluid according to Archimedes' principle?

Then the object will sink.
