What will happen to the value of g if the compound pendulum is taken nearer to the centre of earth?

The acceleration of gravity (value of 'g') is maximum on the earth's surface, and it decreases from there in both directions ... up into the air or down into the earth.

Value of g in universe?

I think that g (the gravitational constant) varies dependent on your proximity to other massive bodies. For example the value of g on the moon is less than the value of g on earth. It is not constant throughout the universe.

Why is the value of g more at Jupiter than at earth?

maybe it is bigger in size than the earth.

Value of gravitational constant on earth and moon?

It's the same as that of Earth but the value of g varies from one object to the other. The value of the gravitational constant or the BIG "G" remains constant. I think you confused it with the LITTLE "g" which is the gravitation of a object (one with mass) or the acceleration due to gravity. The value of g on Earth and Moon is 9.8m/s^2 and 1.6249m/s^2, respectively. I hope this answers you all.

Why value of 'g' decreases due to increase in length?

as we go far from earths surface the value of g decreases this is because g is inversely proportional to the value of r^2(which is the distance of the body from the center of the earth.

If an object is moving away from earth what will be value of g?

For every 1% increase in the object's distance from the center of the earth,the value of 'g' in the vicinity of the object decreases almost 2%.
