Why gravitational acceleration is zero at the centre of the Earth maximum at the poles and minimum at the equator?

And because the Earth is rotating

The linear speed of rotation at the equator is over 1000 mph / 1600 km/h which reduces g by a measurable 0.3%. Of course, at the pole the speed of rotation is 0 so g has a higher value.
