Very simple question that has bugged me for some time, does the acceleration produced by gravitation (e.g. $9.8\: \mathrm{m/s^2}$) would change if we placed an observer closer to the planet's core? I mean, if I were to sit on the center of the Earth, would I still feel the Earth's gravitational field?

Obviously no, at earth's core what should be the direction of gravity? – Ali May 29 '13 at 17:25
