            The mass of an object is independent of the place in the universe i.e. remains constant whatever the
            locations. Only the value of ‘g’ will fluctuate the weight of the body. A number of experimental studies
            revealed that North pole is slightly closer to the Earth’s centre, so the value of gravitational force is 
           maximum at North Pole.Thereby, the weight of an object is maximum at North pole.

            A Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a network that interconnects computers in a geographic area larger 
            than that covered by even a large Local Area Network (LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a Wide 
            Area Network (WAN).

           The network size falls intermediate between LANs and WANs. A MAN typically covers an area of between 
           5 and 50 km diameter. MANs are usually connected with fibre-optic cable, microwave transceivers or leased
           data landlines.

          The best known example of a MAN  is the Cable Televison Network available in many cities. Recent developments
          in high speed wireless Internet access resulted in another type of MAN, which has been standardized as IEEE 
          802.16. Although the 802.16 family of standards is officially called WirelessMAN in IEEE, it has been commercialized
          under the name ‘WiMAX’.
