# What is the distance from the Earth's center to a point in space where the gravitational acceleration due to the Earth is 1/24 of its value at the Earth's surface?

Approximately

Gravity decreases by the square of the distance from the center according to the inverse square law.

One mile is roughly one and a half kilometers, so that's about:

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
