Abstract : A method of measurement is proposed of the vertical gradient of the force of gravity with the aid of a system of weights arranged at different heights, which has the distinguishing feature that for the purpose of increasing the precision of the measurements, two weights the upper one of which has positive buoyancy and the lower one negative, rigidly joined one with the other, are placed in a liquid and the change in the vertical gradient in measured by the change in the buoyancy of the system.
