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.

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)

Thank you for the explanation. Is the Lorentz's Force law F=q(vXB) the main equation behind this?
