A particle is thrown up vertically with initial speed, reaches a maximum height and falls back to ground. Show that the Coriolis deflection when it again reaches the ground is opposite in ...
Inspired by this Phys.SE question, Coriolis force in free fall, I have to ask: Why does the Coriolis force act in the east-direction? I would say, if I jump from a high distance and look at the ...
Recently I did an assignment about helicopters, and during the oral exam we talked about Coriolis forces. I know where it comes from, and I've seen the derivation: Example In the case of helicopters, ...
Consider an orbital elevator simply modelled as a large mass in geostationary orbit (altitude approx 36,000km) around the Earth, connected to a point on the equator via a strong, light, likely ...
