This article considers a direct 3-D gravitational problem with respect to bodies with exponential density variation with depth. An effective algorithm is obtained for solution of the problem of determining the vertical derivative of the gravity potential in an arbitrary polyhedron. The stability, accuracy and fast-running program realization of the solution are studied using model examples.
