All references maintain that there is more gravity at the poles because they are closer to the centre. and You weigh less at the equator because your are higher, with additional weight loss because of the spin getting you nearer to escape velocity.! But is this not incorrect, despite the majority opinion? There is more mass under you at the equator, less at the poles. since mass increases with the cube, or even eight fold, and distance action only by the square, should not gravity be higher at the equator? ignoring the spin lift?
