So High Yet So Low

AA and BB are points at a distance hh from the surface of the earth where the value of the acceleration due to gravity is the same. AA is above the surface and BB is below the surface.

If h=(k12)Rh=\left( \dfrac{ \sqrt{k}-1}{2}\right)R, where RR is the radius of the Earth, compute kk.
