Q:

Does an object's mass decrease as it gets father from Earth?

A:

Mass is the amount of matter in an object and stays the same no matter where the object is. Weight, on the other hand, is the measurement of the gravitational pull on an object. So while the mass of an object is constant no matter its location, the weight of an object will decrease as it gets father from the pull of Earth’s gravity.
