comment Have they really photographed light behaving both as a particle and a wave?
What is the point of this irrelevant pile of text?

Edited so that the post has ONE question only (instead of two)

Yes, that is consistent with what I have read.

comment What are some open problems in classical electrodynamics?
@Qmechamic, I am more interested in what hft describes as "clever little problems based on basic material". I am not looking for a discussion on "problems" that are resolved by the corresponding quantum theory. That is why I mentioned "side problems".

comment How to calculate the value of gravitational acceleration of my town
Both the formulas hold for different situations. I am thinking out loud here but I think what if we applied the latitude formula first to find the effective $g$ at that point and them used that value of $g$ as $g_0$ in the altitude formula, we might get a more precise value of g at the town which takes both factors into account? I am having doubts because as Qmechanic pointed out in the comment that the assumption that the earth is spherically symmetric (as we did in deriving the altitude formula) is inconsistent with the fact that earth is spinning.

comment How to calculate the value of gravitational acceleration of my town
Well, I plugged in the numbers into both formulas. And the 'altitude formula' gives a value of $9.79m/s^2$ and the 'latitude formula' gives $9.77m/s^2$. (I stand corrected, both of them give nearly equal values)
